About ujjain

The ancient city of Ujjain in the state of Madhya Pradesh is considered to be one of the holiest cities of India. Originally called Avantika, this city has a lot to give to the cultural heritage of the country. Once regarded as the center of learning and cultural hub of central India, it has gained immortality after its mention in the works of the great Kalidasa. Situated on the banks of River Kshipra, Ujjain is the site for the triennial Kumbh Mela. Once in every twelve years, it hosts millions of devotees who take the opportunity to bathe in the holy waters and pay their offerings. Mahakaleshwar is another reason for the city to have tourists each year. A significant shrine for the Hindus, it is one of the only twelve Shiva temples of its kind across the globe.\r\n\r\nSurrounded by the Vindhya Range and on the Malwa Plateau, Ujjain has a unique landscape to fall for. The greenery filled hills on one side and cotton plantations on the other give you a captivating view. Owing to the black soil of the region, the finest form of pottery, NBP, was also originated in Ujjain. Experience the unmatched legacy with a visit to this city.
