Shri Drona Sagar Teerth

चैती मेला स्थल से काशीपुर की ओर २ किलोमीटर आगे नगर से लगभग जुड़ा हुआ एक महत्वपूर्ण ताल द्रोण सागर है।  पांडवों से इस ताल का सम्बन्ध बताया जाता है कि गुरु द्रोण ने यहीं रहकर अपने शिष्यों को धनुर्विद्या की शिक्षा दी थी।  ताल के किनारे एक पक्के टीले पर गुरु द्रोण की एक प्रतिमा है, ऐतिहासिक व धार्मिक दृष्टिकोण से यह विशिष्ट पर्यटन स्थल है।

Drona Sagar is believed to be associated with Guru Dronacharya, teacher of the Pandavas and the Kauravas in the epic Mahabharata. Many believe that the Drona Sagar was created by the Pandavas as a Guru Dakshina (fee) for Dronacharya. The Skanda Purana states that the water of Drona Sagar is as holy as that of the Ganges.

At present a huge pond with lotus flowers is situated here. The pond is surrounded by temples of various deities. Earlier, there were 32 temples around the periphery of this pond. The excavated site at Drona Sagar is protected by the Archaeological Survey of India.
