    ... city, and a site where people bathe each day. This particular kund (pond) is however special as it is said to help with infertility. Many moons ago a King was prescribed a course of bathing here to help him sire a child and since then it has been a popular place for couples who are struggling to conceive to take a dip. Surrounding the pond are lots of clothes lying around on the floor, discarded by their owners. Amrit explained that when infertile couples leave ...
