Ujjain Tourism & Travel Guide

Located on the banks of the river Shipra, Ujjain is a city famous for its many temples and religious centres. The Ram Mandir Ghat of Ujjain is the site for the world renowned Kumbh Mela, which is one of the largest peace gatherings to take place in the country. The calm and cool waters of this ghat are believed to cleanse those who take a dip of their sins. The most famous temple is the Mahakaleshwar Temple, which is one of the 12 jyotirlingas of India. The intricate construction of the temple is an architectural marvel in itself. Considered to be the most important among the eight Bhairavas of Lord Shiva, the Kal Bhairav temple is also situated here. Perhaps the most important educational destination of ancient Ujjain would be the Ved Shala Observatory, where scholars and astronomers would convene and unravel the many mysteries of their disciplines. Relatively simple in architecture, this spot is a must visit. The cuisine is predominantly Indian with Punjabi cuisine and Rajasthani thalis being a favourite amongst a majority of tourists. Popular restaurants here are New Sudama, Shivam Restaurant and Aarti Restaurant. Hotels are very easily available here, and you can easily find one which suits your budget and taste. The aura of the city is sure to engulf you. Visit Ujjain to delve into and experience the sanctity of India.

I started from the Mahakaleshwar Temple.It's the first tourist attraction place in Ujjain specially for Hindus. The temple was rushed by lots of 'Bhakt'. When i went there i came to know what the real artistic work is. The architecture of the temple was so good and attractive. It tell us about the craftmenship of peoples across different timelines.Inside the temple there was no hustle-bustle , everything seems silent except chirping of birds. In the temple there are idols of god and goddesses. On the third floor there is a idol of Naagchandreshwar, where we can only go on Naag Panchami ,the only day it is kept open. Inside the temple you will forget all your worries and feel peace.After going to temple i realised that there is a pre - booking system for 'Bhasma-Aarti'. Bhasma-aarti was their at early morning 5a.mFor that people start forming a line at mid-night as there are hundreds of people in a queue for Bhasma Aarti darshan.As there is so much crowd .●There is a kind of VIP entry available for tourists only at rs.250/-.
