Parasuram Kund

One of the Sacred places for the Hindus in India, Parasuram Kund hold significance during thr Makar Sankranti festival in January. Parasuram Kund is not just artistically located, but has steeped also in tribal legend and is much venerated by Hindus. The holy sage Parasuram is said to have wandered all over India to atone for the sin of matricide initiated by his father. On the advice of some sages he came to bathe in the kund in this remote land. The axe that was stuck to his hand fell away cleaving the mountain from which sprang the Lohit River. This sleepy hollow on the Arunachal-Assam border becomes a hive of activity during the Makar Sankranti festival.


Located 20 km from Tezu, the Lohit district is home to the Mishmi, Singhpos and Khampti tribes
