Gulzarilal Nanda Institute of National Integration and Peace is a tribute to the man, who played a vital role in the development of Kurukshetra. Gulzarilal Nanda is known to be the architect of modern Kurukshetra.. This place is located near Sannehit Sarovar.
An ex-prime minister of India, Gulzarilal Nanda was a national leader with a versatile personality, On Gandhiji's advice, Gulzarilal Nanda started his career as a labour leader and fought for the cause of the labourers and workers.
Once on solar eclipse day, like any other pilgrim, he visited Kurukshetra to have a sacred bath in the Brahma Sarovar. He smeared his body with slush from the holy spot and returned as there was little water in the lake. Disappointed with the neglect of a well-known religious place of pilgrimage like Kurukshetra, he set up Kurukshetra Development Board in August 1968.
With his efforts and enterprise, renovation of Brahma Sarovar, Pehowa, Sannehit Sarovar, Jyotisar, Pundrik Tirtha and many other Tirthas could take place. With a vision of making visitors aware about Kurukshetra's cultural, spiritual and historical importance, he set up the Srikrishna Museum.
The Gulzarilal Nanda Institute of National Integration and Peace reflects the gratitude the city owes for the visionary who transformed the future of the city.
