Temple of Yamuna ji is the main temple of worship. Near this temple there
are a few hot water springs where the water rushes out of the mountain
cavities at boiling point. Surya-Kund is the most important kund. A pinch of
rice or potatoes, tied loosely in a cloth, are dipped in it and after a few
minutes when taken out completely cooked. These are taken home as prasad.
Near the Surya Kund there is a shila called Divya-Shila which is worshipped
before puja is offered to Yamunaji.
Nearby is the Jamuna Bai Kund-built about 75 years ago-which is used for a
holy bath. The water is pleasantly warm and relaxing.
