Pishach Mochan Kund Basic Details

Pishach Mochan Kund is a sacred place for the Mukti Dham of our Pitra Devtas. It is mandatory for all devotees to perform Pind Daan in Kashi’s Pishach Mochan Kund before proceeding to Gaya Shradh.
Pishach Mochan is the teerth that for many years has continued to relieve millions of devotees from Pitra Dosh and other troubles in life.

Legend associated with the Pishach Mochan Kund :

There was a Brahmin by the name of ‘Pishach’ he used to only take Daan and never gave Daan to anybody. So what happened is after his death he went into ‘Pishach Yoni’.
Desperate to get mukti he started praying to lord Brahma who instructed him to go to Kashi and pray to Kapardhiswar Mahadev, as he was the only one who could help him in attaining Mukti.
Pishach sincerely offered his prayers to Kapardhishwar Mahadev on a daily basis and also took a dip in the kund near the temple before his prayers.
Finally Kapardhiswar Mahadev, pleased with his devotion and sincere prayers, decided to free him from the Pishach Yoni.
Mahadev instructed him to take a dip in the Kund after which he went from ‘Pishach Yoni’ to ‘Pitra Yoni’ and hence attained to mukti. The kund from that day came to be known as the Pischah Mochan Kund i.e place where even the worst of the people get free from their troubles.
Maharishi Valmiki also offered his prayers around the Pishach Mochan kund hence this place also came to be known as the Vimalodak kund or Vimal Teerth.
