History It is an ancient place of pilgrimage to both Hindus & Sikhs. Its importance is evident from the fact that its name appears at numerous places in Mahabharata and Puranas. Dropati and five Pandavas also visited this holy place. Kapal Mochan has been described as famous in all the three mythological worlds. It is the destroyer of all sins. The devotees get rid of sins by taking a dip in the sacred tank. Kapal Mochan is a natural hollow near the bank of Sarswati River. This place was also visited by Guru Gobind Singh ji after the battle of Bhangani in 1679 AD on his way to Paonta Sahib. He stayed and worshipped here for 52 days. His soldiers cleaned their weapons and tested them to meet future challenges. He gave a copper plate having his signature as memento to the chief priest of Kapal Mochan. To do darshan of the over 300 yrs of that Hukamnama plate which you see in the picture below , you may call the priest Subhash Chander Sharma ji directly at phone no. 91-1735-325197
