Devdaha Pond

Devdaha Pond


Situated at Devdaha Minicipality, ward no. 9, about 1 km north of GhodahaI, Devdaha is a pond having religious and historical significance. In Sanskrit Language, Deva means god and Daha means a pond hence the literal meaning of Devdaha is “pond of a God“. It is believed that the gods and goddesses and saints bathed in this pond. Prince Siddartha himself is believed to have bathed in this holy pond during his visit here in Devdaha. Because it came into existence without human intervention, it is considered divine and the water of this holy pond was supplied in the Koliya Palace. The ancient Koliya Kingdom and present Devdaha received its name Devdaha from this very holy pond.
