Secret Of The Fort Of Asirgarh
Everyone knows about Ashwatthama of Mahabharata. Ashwatthama went to take revenge for the death of his father in the war of Mahabharata, and due to his mistake, he got cursed thousands of years by Lord Krishna. People believe that Shiv Temple located in the Asirgarh Fort of Burhanpur city of Madhya Pradesh, even today the Ashwatthama worship Lord Shiva first. On the Shivling of Lord Shiva, every day gets fresh flowers and colors, which is still a mystery. Ashwatthama was born in the Mahabharata period (Dwapara Yuga). He was a great and powerful warrior of that era. He was the son of Guru Dronacharya and the nephew of Rajguru Kripacharya of Kuru Dynasty. During the Mahabharata period, Guru Dronacharya had taught (Martial Arts) the Kauravas and Pandavas together. Guru Dronacharya fought with the side of Kauravas in the battle of Mahabharata. Ashwatthama was very skillful in weapon and warfare knowledge like his father. The pair of father and son together destroyed the most of the Pandavas army. Lord Krishna knew that we have to stop Dronacharya early otherwise he will destroy the entire Pandava army. That is why he adopted a diplomatic policy with the Dharmraj Yudhishthira and spread the news in the war zone that Ashwatthama died. When Guru Dronacharya heard this news, he went to the Yudhishthira to confirm it.Yudhishthira told Dronacharya that I do not know Ashwatthama’s elephant has died or Ashwatthama. Upon hearing this, Guru Dronacharya completely lost and he gave up his weapons. When Drupada’s son Dhrishtadyumna heard that, Dronacharya has dropped his weapons in the sadness of the son’s death. So Dhrishtadyumna took advantage of this and killed Dronacharya. After listening to the news of the death of his father, Ashwatthama got angry and killed all the sons of Pandavas. After this, Ashwatthama gave his Brahmastra direction towards Uttara’s womb. Seeing this, Lord Krishna became angry and took away the gem of Ashwatthama’s head and cursed him for wandering on the earth for thousands of years. Apart from the fort of Asirgarh, Ashwatthma has also been seen near the Narmada River near Jabalpur. Many people also say that many times the Ashwatthama has reached their houses to demand turmeric to stop the bleeding from his head. According to the residents of the locality, when a person sees an Ashwatthama, his mental status gets worse. People believe that before going to Shiva Temple situated in the fort of Asirgarh, the Ashwatthama bath in the pond of the fort. It is a strange thing that despite the soaring heat of Burhanpur, this pond never dries up. The temple Gupteshwar Mahadev is only a short distance from the pond. This temple is surrounded by trenches all around. According to the stories, there is a secret path in the trenches which goes straight to the temple. Using this path, Ashwatthama regularly worships Lord Shiva in the temple Every day fresh flowers are found on Shivling. According to historians, the history of Burhanpur is associated with Mahabharata period. This place first came into the Khandava forest. The fort was built by the emperor Asa Ahir. That is why it is also known as Asa Ahir Garh fort. However, there is no convincing proof associated with Ashwatthama, which proves that Ashwatthama is still alive. As it is often said, if you believe, then it is true for you and if you don’t believe, then it is a lie for you.
