It is believed that Mahabharat started from Jyotisar. Jyotisar means “the Core meaning of light” which is ‘symbolic reference to god’ or ‘divine wisdom’ and It is also believed, the Great Sage Manu wrote Manusmriti in this place. The Rig Veda and Sama Veda were also composed in this place. This is the place where Lord Shri Krishna unleashed his destructive force and initiated the end of the dwapar yuga.
The most sacred spot in Jyotisar is under the ancient banyan tree and next to it a beautiful marble chariot with the idols of Lord Shri Krishna and great warrior Arjuna.
During the November-December every year in Gita Jayanti celebrations are held here with immense religious fervor and dedication drawing people from all the places. As per the holy vedas, Jyotisar is a very important place for Hindus and should be visit here by at least once in their lifetime.
Jyotisar is about 8 kms from Krishna Museum and is easly accessible by buses from Kurukshetra central bus station.
