The historical city of Lucknow is well-known for the a couple of temples that dot its diverse areas. One of such temples is the Chakra Tirth Temple. This region itself is colored with many myths and legends associated with the Mahabharata. It is assumed that Chakra Tirth turned into the place in which the 'Chakra' of the Hindu god Brahma stopped and went within the earth, declaring that particular spot to be holy.
Another model of the myth associates the region with the 'Sudershan Chakra' of the popular Hindu god Vishnu. Many devotees throng this scenic, spring-fed pool to take tub in its holy water and wash their sins away. Apart from the divinity and the numerous temples around the pool, which enlarge the calm aura of the place, the brilliant design of the pool, with 'chakras' adorning it, is a sight a good way to invoke a sense of wonder and devotion in every visitor's mind.
