Nestled in the lower reaches of the Lohit River, Parshuram Kund is a sacred place in Arunachal Pradesh. Situated 13 miles to the north-east of Tezu, the Kund has been recognized as a pilgrim spot, visited by a large number of devotees. On every Makar Sankranti (Indian Harvest Festival), devotees from different parts of the world visit this place. This sacred place leaves an indelible impression on the mind of the visitors as well as pilgrims.
Legend say that Parshuram killed his mother with an axe as commanded by his father. During this, the axe got stuck to his hands and he wandered all across India, visiting sacred places for atonement. But all was in vain. Then he came all the way to the Kund where he took a dip and the axe came free and fell down. The spot where it fell became the source of Lohit River. Since then, the Kund has been known as the Parshuram Kund.
An annual event of the temple is known as Parshuram Mela. Held in January every year, the Mela or fair draws a heavy crowd from various corners of the country.
During the Mela, the surrounding becomes pious. The local administration initiates all types of arrangements (shelters, ration shops, medical aid, drinking water, toilets, etc.) for the crowd of devotees who visit the mela.
Colorful kiosks around the Mela make the atmosphere more delightful. One can see a large variety of articles in these shops.
Even the calm natural beauty of this place attracts the casual tourists. There are some other beautiful places visited by many tourists. Tezu City and Glow Lake add natural delight to the place.
Due to the increasing popularity of this place, many small and big hotels have come up with good accommodation that has solved the accommodation problem for the visitors.
