PILPILA TEERTH

Kashi Khand, at various places, mentions one important Teerth called as Pilpila Teerth.

During Kashi Khand days, this Teerth must have been very big but now it is existing in the form of a Koop (Well). Pilpila Koop is located near Trilochaneshwar temple.  The compiler visited the place on Akshay Triteeya day (a very auspicious day when many people take bath in the Koop).  The compiler took bath with the water drawn from the well and were given to understand that there is a huge crowd on the above auspicious day.

During the other days, the place remains open for about one hour or so and at times it remains closed also.
