Lohargal has great historical importance – regarded as the place of Bhima, one of the heroes of the great epic of India – the Mahabharata. The holy shrine of Lohargal is situated at the foot hills of the Aravalli Ranges.
In the Varāha Purana, a place named Lohārgala is stated to be ruled over by the Mleccha kings. There is a holy water tank at Lohargal, where pilgrims who cannot afford to go all the way to Varanasi come to wash away their sins. According to myth a mighty and huge army of Pandavas came to bathe here after their glorious victory on the battle fields only to find that their weapons and armours dissolved in the water. The literal meaning of Lohargal is Loha (Iron)+Gal (To melt), means that melts the iron.
