Sapta Moksha Puri (सप्त मोक्ष पुरी!)


Sapta Moksha Puri

Sapta means seven-seven and Puri means city. It is believed that there are seven such places in India, which are called Mokshadayini Sapta Puris. Which is told by the following verses:

अयोध्या-मथुरामायाकाशीकांचीत्वन्तिका, पुरी द्वारावतीचैव सप्तैते मोक्षदायिकाः।

In Hinduism, attaining salvation is given great importance. According to Hindu Puranas, seven such men have been made, where human beings attain liberation. Moksha means liberation, which liberates man from the cycle of life and death. In these Moksha Daini Puris, renouncing the body is above all valuable things for human life.

1. Ayodhya - Ayodhya @Uttar Pradesh
Shri Ram, the seventh incarnation of Bhagwan Vishnu, was born on the holy land of Ayodhya. The city of Ayodhya, which established its identity from Treta Yug to Kalyug, has been described as the city of Bhagwan in the Atharvaveda. The river Saryu flows near this holy city where Shri Ram renounced his human form and proceeded towards Vaikunth Lok.

2. Mathura - Mathura @Uttar Pradesh
On the other hand, due to the birth place of Bhagwan Krishna, the sanctity of this place increases even more. According to a legend, Mathura was discovered by Shatrughna, the youngest brother of Bhagwan Rama. This city is special for Shraddha Karma. People from far and wide come here for the liberation of their ancestors. Yamuna river flows near Mathura city.

3. Haridwar - Haridwar @Uttarakhand
Haridwar is a combination of two words Hari + Dwar. Hari here means Bhagwan Vishnu. Nestled on the banks of the Ganges, it is considered one of the most sacred cities in the world. It is also called 'Mayapuri' in mythological interpretation. The river Ganges from the hair of Bhagwan Shiva enhances the sanctity of this city even more. Over the years people come to visit Haridwar to attain salvation.

4. Kashi - Varanasi @Uttar Pradesh
It is also called Banaras or Varanasi. Along with the Ganges river, the other two rivers Varuna and Asi river are also present here. This city was named Varanasi due to the combination of Varun and Asi rivers. The Vedas, one of the four Vedas of Hinduism, describe Kashi, according to which Kashi is called the city of Shiva. This city is considered one of the most loved places of Bhagwan Shiva.

5. Kanchi (Kanchipuram) - Kanchipuram @Tamil Nadu
Kanchipuram Tirthapuri is considered to be the Kashi of the south. According to Kanchipuram or mythology, Kanchi is known to have been created by Bhagwan Brahma, the creator of the universe. According to a legend, Bhagwan Brahma meditated at this place to have a glimpse of the Devi.

6. Ujjain (Avantika) - Ujjain @Madhya Pradesh
The oldest name of Ujjain is Avantika which was named after a king named Avanti. Ujjayini was the capital of Maharaja Vikramaditya in ancient times.

7. Dwarka - Dwarka @Gujarat
The city of Dwarka was built by Bhagwan Krishna himself. Its ancient name was Kushasthali. According to a legend, the name of this city was Kushsthali due to Maharaja Ravatak performing Yajna by laying Kush in the sea.
