Named after the writer of the Indian epic Mahabharata, Maharishi Vyasa, Bilaspur is a census town which is located at the Yamuna Nagar district of Haryana. Certain legends about this historical town state that there was an ashram of Rishi Ved Vyas situated on the shores of a pond.
Bilaspur has a number of ponds like Rinmochan, Kapalmochan and Surya Kund which are considered sacred. Visitors come from all around the country and take a dip in the holy water of these ponds to experience spiritual upliftment.
In addition to the ponds, the town of Bilaspur is also famous for the statue of Uma Mahadev, which is said to be created in the 9th-10th century. There is also an idol of Lord Ganesha which is believed to be made during the 11th-12th century. One can also find the Gupta Empire at this town.
Nestled amidst scenic surrounding at the Sivalik Hills, Adi Badri is a place which reflects peace and beauty. At a distance of about 39.5 km north of the Yamuna Nagar town, Adi has famous temples like the Shri Kedar Nath, Mantra Devi and Adi Badri Narayana. Lately, the Archaeological Survey of India has discovered three mounds of antiquities at Adi Badri.
Located at a distance of about 7 km from the city of Jagadhri, Buria is a tiny town and a municipal committee, which is on the shores of the western Yamuna Canal. As there is a structure popularly known as the Birbal Dwar at this town, many believe that it was governed by Birbal, the witty court advisor of King Akbar.
History states that the town of Buria was a princely state before the Indian independence, which was ruled by Ratan Amol Singh. One can note that, this king’s family still resides in Buria. Buria also has many religious attractions, such as the Pataleshwar Mahadev Shiv Mandir, the Sanatan Dharam Hanuman Mandir, along with a gurdwara, which was built in honour of the ninth sikh guru, Tegh Bahadur.
