Legendary Kaklas Kund under Face-Lift
The famous Kaklas Kund at Dwarka is soon to regain its past glory. The neglected monument is now under renovation and repairs. Gujarat Tourism has undertaken the work in a way that its traditional significance is retained.

In short, the story of Kaklas Kund goes like this. The mythological king named Nrig, known for his charity and donations, inadvertently donated the same cow twice. The two Brahmin recipients of the same cow were not allowed to lodge a complaint to the king. The Brahmin cursed the king to be a chameleon and stay in a dark pond (Kaklas Kund). The curse would end when Lord Krishna in Yadu Vansh incarnation would touch the chameleon.

Accordingly, when children of Yadavas were playing, they found frightening chameleon. They called Krishna who touched the reptile and freed him. In Dwarka, the Lord Krishna’s image is brought to Kaklas Kund on ‘zilana ekadashi’ in the Indian month of Saavan. The image is given holy bath there.

Kaklas Kund, thus is a very important site seeing in Dwarka. Devotees believe that taking bath in the Kaklas Kund’s water is the cure for skin deceases.
