There is a hint of mythology at Goddess Bhimeshwari Temple. According to a legend, the idol of the goddess was installed by Bhima, one of the Pandavas. Before Mahabharata battle, Bhima wanted to have blessings of Kuldevi. Yudhishthira and Bhima went to Hinglay Mountain (now in Pakistan) and prayed Kuldevi to move to the battle field and bless them with victory. The Kuldevi accepted the plea with the condition that Bhima will not drop her down on the way from the his lap and if he does so, she will go no further from that place.
While on way Bhima placed the idol of Goddess under the Beri tree and as per the condition, Kuldevi remained there. Unfortunately Bhima had to go to Kurukshetra battle only with blessings of Kuldevi. After 18 days of the war, a marvellous temple was built here.

Gurukul Jhajjar Archeological Museum is a place of pride for the town. It is the biggest museum in Haryana. The committed and passionate effort of Swami Omanand Saraswati in collecting antiques from various parts of the country brought this museum into being in 1959. The huge museum has antique coins and beautiful variety of idols.
The major attractions are idols of Panchwati’s deer statue (referring to Sita’s kidnapping), Lord Vishnu, and Lord Ganesha. Meticulously and tactfully made wooden chain with no joints and a unique 'flexible' stone are worth-seeing.
Location -: Jhajjar, District : Jhajjar
Situation -: Situated out side the town on the Jhajjar-Delhi road, near Bua Ka Talab area.
Under protection of -: Government of India
Period -: 1594-1626 AD
History and description -: A group of tombs and mosques are located in 'Bua Ka Talab' area. Chronologically almost all of them were built when Mughal emperors Akbar, Jahangir and Shahjahan reigned (1594-1626 AD). They present fine examples of an antedated Pathan style of architecture, and also resemble the style of Shargi monuments of Jaunpur. Homogeneity of grandiose architecture and planning indicate that it was a family graveyard probably of the local chiefs and nobles of repute.
There is a painful yet platonic love story attached to Bua Wala Talab. Years ago, there lived Mustafa Kalol, who enjoyed prestigious posts in Government; he had a beautiful and brave daughter named Bua. Once in a jungle, she encountered a tiger, a poor woodcutter Hasan helped her and took her back to the palace. She fell in love with brave and handsome Hasan. Even Bua’s father reluctantly approved of their marriage. Bua’s father sent Hasan to the battle field to fight as a soldier where he died. When Bua came to know about the sad news, she went to the pond where the lovers used to meet, with Hasan’s dead body, buried him there and built a tomb in the memory of her lover. After two years, Bua passed away, and she was buried beside Hasan’s tomb.
