Located a hundred kilometers from Delhi, Kosi is a town that offers a blend of the modern with the ancient. Kosi or Kosi Kalan as it is also known, is an industrial town of Uttar Pradesh and home to Kokilavan Dham, a well known pilgrimage site. Its proximity to Mathura has influenced Kosi to become a major site of Krishna bhakti – devotion to Lord Krishna.
Deriving its name from the word Kosh, meaning a treasury, Koshi touches three Indian states at its borders – Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan. This has led to a unique mix in the culture and sociology of Kochi. Visitors can visit the three sacred tanks – Maya Kund, Bisakha Kund and Gomati Kund along with offering prayers to Lord Shani at the famous and serene Kokilavan Dham. Growing at a fast pace, the town offers visitors traditional ambience and charm in a setting that speaks volumes of all modern day comforts.
