Punpun is a village in Patna District in the state of Bihar, India. It is 15 km south of Patna. The name Punpun comes from the river Punpun, a tributary of river Ganga, on whose bank the village has flourished.
It is having religious significance as well as it can be found from garur puraan which reads as :
" Kittessu gaya punya punayam rajgriyaham vanam!
visayascharanaha punyo nadi naayaz punaah pun !!
punchkosham gaya kshetrayam koshmaikam gaya shira!
i.e. The country Magadh is having four tirth(place of religious importance) viz. gaya, rajgirh, devkund and punaha puna. One who do pinddan Within five kosh (unit of distance) in gaya and in a kosh of gaya shir then the person (performer) is blessed by their forefathers. It also mentions that if the pinddan (offerings made to forefathers not alive) is made in the month of makershakrant and if solar or lunar eclipse happens then the belessings are unmatched in the three Loks.
If the people of following min(chait), mesh(aries, month :vaishak), singh (leo, month: bhadra), kanya(virgo, month: ashwin), dhanu (Sagittarius, month: paush and falgun) .
The importance of punpun is form very beginning it is said that in ancient time there were some rishi(ascetic) namely Sanak, Sunandan , Sanatan, Kapil, AAshuri, Vodu and Panchsikh were given order by brahama (The lord who created this world) to do tapsaya for the growth of the world in plamu region (Jharkhand) and hence they started doing tap(prayer) and hence several decades passed, resulting growth of the world and the society. Lastly Brahama appeared but these rishis were in extreme meditation state but they felt the arrival of Brahama so they stood up and tried to take charanamrit (water collected after washing feet of the deity ). Unfortunately there wasn’t any water so they started collecting sweat from their bodies in kamandal (Pot).
Brahama after watching all this said to them “please do not do this, your sweat is very precious “. So they kept the kamandal on some safe place but fortunately it fell down several times (i.e puna puna [repeted]) and hence brahama said puna-puna which resulted in pious river.
After all these Brahama said : listen Aryans this river will continue flowing for millions of years and will let new generation to remember you. And one who do pind dan in this river will be able to make smooth path to haven for their ancestors.
It is said that Buddha to have visited this place and stayed here after getting gayan.
Around 1857 (famous for Sepoy revolt) a rail route was established from Gaya to Patna and by then a halt was made in a view to manage peoples gathering at punpun ghat (named as punpun bathing ghat).
The books presented to me by pandit Trivini Mishra clearly states that several rajas of Nepal have visited this place to perform pind daan.
Some of them are:
Ø Shree Youdth Sumsher (13 paus 1984)
Ø Shree Homvir Vikram Shah (9 paus shulk som 1994)
Ø Shree Padan Singh Rana
Ø Shree Durga Samsher
Ø Shree ekrala smasher
Ø Shree Lila Samsher
Ø Shree Bheem Samsher
Ø Shree Vashundra Veer etc.
Inspite of all these peoples from several parts of India, Shi Lanka, Burma use to visit these place.
