The tiratha is located six kilometre away from Pehowa on Ambala Road or 31 kilometre from Krukshetra town. This is one of the important place of pilgrimages associated with the saints Vashishta and Vishwamittra. The place is also significant for being the meeting points of the rivers Saraswati and Aruna. Mahabharata and Vamana Puran vividly describe about the significance of this tirath. However, presently the tirath is not known for the story narrated in the epic and the purana. Rather it is famous for being a Shivaite centre called Sangameshwar Mahadev temple. Here lies a temple dedicated to Shiva or Sangmaeshwar Mahadev adjoining to a small tank. Thousands of pilgrims and devotees throng to the temple regularly.
