Crocodile Breeding Centre
The Bhor Saidan Crocodile Breeding Centre is located 22 km from Kurukshetra and 13 km from Thanesar at Bhor Saidan village, also spelled as Bhour Saidan or Bhoor Saiydan, on the Kurukshetra-Pehowa road near Bhureeshwar Temple, one of the pilgrimage sites in Kurukshetra in the Indian state of Haryana.
Bhor Saidan village was named after Kaurava hero Bhurisrava of Mahabharta, son of Somadutta.
The Mugger crocodiles are believed to have been brought by one of the Mahants of the nearby temples in the 1930s. In 1980, Forests Department, Haryana took over the breeding center and the Bhor Saidan village panchayat gave 15+ acre land to the Government of Haryana to start the breeding center. Periphery has been fenced and a mound inside the pond was created to watch the crocodiles from the close range.
