Sarasvati sarovar, Ad badri seen from space
The sarasvati sarovar 80m X 80m close to Kapal Mochan soma sarovar (20km. from Jagadhri, Yamunanagar dist.) not far from Paonta Saheb in HP, is a tribute to swargiya Moropant Pingle ji. The sarovar has come up at the same spot where he did yajna in search of Vedic River Sarasvati and started on a scientific discovery process with a team led by the late Padmashri Vakankar ji.
What a privilege it is to be living in times when River Sarasvati is coming to bless us and future generations. One Jaina muni told me that we will have no punarjanmam because of this tirthasthanam. We owe it to Pawankumar, Dy. Forest Officer, Haryana who constructed the sarovar in 7 days the moment he got the nod from the DC, Yamunanagar who mentioned the approval from Hon'ble Jagmohan ji.
There is a saying in Tamil. muzhu poosanikkaaye sottile maraikka mudiyaadu (one can't hide a whole pumpkin in a morsel of cooked rice). Sarasvati heritage, viraasat is effulgent like the sun and will live as long as mahaakaala is engaged in taandava nrityam demonstrating the cosmic order of dharma.
We need to get a Sarasvati River Basin Development Authority organized by Govt. of India and reach reborn Sarasvati into Gujarat by the svarnajayanti year. She has travelled about 1000 kms. from Manasarovar glacier (Mt. Kailas) upt Gedra Road, Barmer Dist. in a 40 ft. wide 12 ft. deep channel. We need to take our children to Ahmedabad for a sacred in the dip in reborn Sarasvati there.
Last year Karthik Purnima day, lakhs visited both Kapala mochan and Ad Badri Sarasvati sarovar. This deepam has to be handed over to the youngest nation on the face of the globe. This is our kapala mochan.
Kapal Mochan mela ends in Haryana

Yamunanagar, Nov 24 (UNI) The famous historical and religious Kapal Mochan Mela concluded as about 10 lakh devotees took the holy dip at the stroke of midnight in the three historic sarovars here.
They lit 'diyaas' on the banks of the sarovars, which coupled with the electric lights, decorated the gurudwaras and templespresenting a picturesque scene.
The Kapal Mochan fair has its roots in the age-old myth that it relieves the sins of all the three eras. As per the belief of the people, taking a bath in Kapal Mochan sarovars washes away sins which are even as grave as 'Brahma Hatya'.
The Kapal Mochan 'dham' here is also believed to have been the workplace of Maharishi Ved Vyas, the son of Maharishi Prashar and the creator of great epic Mahabharata.
There are five 'tiraths' in different directions of the Kapal Mochan. In the north is Tirthraj Kapal Mochan itself and on other sides are Som Sarovar, Rin Mochan, Surya Kund and Chandar Kund.
These sarovars are known to provide fame and fortune to those who come to take the holy bath.
The holy place has a great following among the Sikh community too, since in 1687 Guru Gobind Singh had rested here for 52 days after the Bangani battle.
