The Place still exists

Kuruvansh Kingdom (originally Kuru Kingdom) existed nearly about 5,000 (five thousand) years back, but the place which was known as Hastinapur still exists. You may open then link above and find out the directions to Hastinapur. Hastinapur is situated between Meerut and Bijnor in Uttar Pradesh (a State of India). The NH-58 between Delhi and Meerut is a nightmare to drive.

It is still there and with lots of change. There is a Tourism place – JAIN MANDIR – located there along with many old temples and an archeological site which is under the excavation and research of Archeological Survey of India (ASI).

Pandava Temple (Location on Map: 29.154972N ,78.008593E) is the place where the Pandavas used to worship Lord Shiva (according to locals). Apart from Pandava Temple which has remains of “Shivling” of Pandavas times, there are many attractions and is a good place to explore.
