Some may call it a superstition, some may see it as a business opportunity, the day’s first pitcher of holy water drawn from the famous Marichi `Kunda’ (pond) located in the Mukteswar Temple here, fetched Rs 1.30 lakh, in an auction conducted on the eve of Lord Lingaraj’s annual Rukuna Ratha festival here.

It is believed that bathing in the holy water helps resolve fertility problems among devotees.
