REWA KUND - A RESERVOIR OF FAITH AND STORIESDirection
This water reservoir was constructed by Baz Bahadur on the insistence of his beloved Rani Rupmati at the base of her palace, the Rupmati Mahal. This water tank is a matter of reverence to the populace here. Rewa Kundis not only the container for the never drying water, but it is also storage of many stories. According to one, Rani Rupmati was a consummate devotee of the mother goddess-the Narmada. It is said that she would not eat a single morsel before paying her obeisance to mother Narmada. It is said that impressed by her veneration mother Narmada appeared in her dream one night and told her to dig at the base of her palace to prepare a place for the mother Narmada to come and stay. It is said that on her insistence Baz Bahadur dug this pool where water appeared and was stored.
