The mythological significance of Dadhichi Kund makes it one of Naimisharanya’s most amazing tourist destinations. Dadhichi Kund, also known as Misrikh Teerth, is a sizable water tank surrounded by beautiful ghats.
This well-known shrine in Naimisharanya was constructed using a straightforward architectural style. The wall inscriptions depict a few moments in Rishi Dadhichi’s life. Misrikh Teerth has an intriguing legend, just like the majority of the Hindu holy places in Naimisharanya.
It claims that a demon named Vritra once drove Devraj Indra from the devlok (world of the gods). When Devraj Indra sought Lord Vishnu, he was informed that the only way to defeat Vritra was with a holy sword fashioned from the bones of Maharishi Dadhichi. Lord Vishnu also instructed Devraj Indra to approach Rishi Dadhichi. Maharishi Dadhichi willingly gave over his bones to kill the demon when Lord Indra approached him.
The entire incident took place in Misrikh, which also has an ashram, a pond (kund), and a temple. He demonstrated unselfish service for the greater good by doing so.
