Originally called Katkasha (strings of tears), Kattas Raj holds a very significant place in the history of sub-continent. Vedic Scriptures reveals an event related to Shiv, whose inconsolable grief at the death of his wife Sati led to a rain of tears which formed a pool of water here.
Kattas Raj dates back to 1500 years ago, consisting of 7 temples (Saat Grahas), out of which five are remaining in their original form, were built by famous Panduva Brothers from MahaBharata after defeated by Kuruavas.
