Havan, also called Yajna, is a Vedic ritual in which people put on a fire in the center and make offerings along with chantings of mantras, mostly to please a god/goddess and/or achieve a certain objective. Though nowadays these Yajnas are of relatively lesser length of time, earlier and as per mythology these could be long and difficult to complete, due to which a Yajna or a Havan is a symbol of dedication and hardwork for an objective. The most important element or objective of Yagna (Havan) is to inculcate the habit or spirit of sacrificing and contributing for the benefit of all, rather than for one ownself. Havan is a purifying ritual with a fire ceremony. It is not a simple ritual but an act of sacrifice and selfless contribution to the universe by the performers through this act. The Sanskrit word is Agnihotra or yagna which is commonly known as Havan in Hindu Vedic religion.
Havan Kund is the center place in a Havan in which the sacred fire is put on and all the offerings are made. It could be considered like a sanctum sanctorum for a Yajna.
