Jyotisar is birthplace of Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna delivered the eternal message of Bhagavad Gita to Arjun under the banyan tree in this place. The Banyan tree under which the Geeta was delivered on the Chariot of Arjuna is believed to be 5,000 year old, one of oldest tree (which is immortal).
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 the 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 Krishna unleashed his destructive force and initiated the end of the dwapar yuga.
The most sacred spot is under the ancient banyan tree and next to it a beautiful marble chariot with the idols of Lord Krishna and Lord Arjuna.
During November-December every year Gita Jayanti celebrations are held here with immense religious fervor and dedication drawing people from all places. This is a very important place for Hindus and should be visit by at least once in their lifetime.
