Kakolat Draws Tourism
April 23, 2009

The only natural water fountain of Bihar happened to be in Kakolat. As summer enters tourist are outnumbered here and a place which remains almost dead for 8-9 long months every year has become a center of attraction once again. Just 30-kms. from Nawada headquarter Kakolat is situated on the Bihar-Jharkhand border.The place is quite peaceful and has retained the greenaries around. At time to time this is being credites as "little Kashmir of Bihar".

There are talks like many tourist come here as having a shower at this fountain helps one get rid of disease like leprosy and other skin disease. This increases its importance and every summer hordes of tourist throngs here for its medicinal values. There are talks about this place in legends too. Near Kakolat there is a village called "Ektara" where Maharishi Markendaya had his Ashram. Back to history in Mahabharata this place is notified as the place where Pandavas took shelter when they were on "Agyatwass".
