Parshuram Kund Tour Package

Parshuram Kund Tour Package

Parshuram is the sixth avatar of Lord Vishnu, son of Renuka and the Saptarishi Jamadagni. It is a shrine of all-India importance located in the lower reaches of the Lohit River. Thousands of pilgrims visit the place in winter every year, especially on the Makar Sankranti day for a holy dip in the sacred Kund which is believed to wash away one's sins. The most popular and prominent one says that when Lord Parshuram killed his mother with an axe on the orders of his father, the axe got stuck to his hand as he had committed a heinous crime by killing his mother. So, in order to wash away his sin, he came to Lohit river in Arunachal Pradesh. As soon as he put his hand inside the pristine waters of the river, the axe got detached from his hand. Since then, the site has been a significant place of worship and is known as Parshuram Kund.
