Some facts that can be traced in this regards-
The flame burns flawless and in blue color. It is burning continously since first date of its known history.We don't have any knowledge of its source. Some says it could be reserve of natural gas but same could not be validated.
Mughal Emperor Akbar once tried to extinguish the flames by covering them with an iron disk and even channelizing water to them. But the flames blasted all these efforts. Akbar then presented a golden parasol (chattar) at the shrine.
Governement of India with team of abled Geologists under Nehru Ji has also tried but in vain to establish the source of this eternal flame.
