UJJAIN TRAVELOGUES AND TRAVEL STORIES


In a very busy routine, everyone wants peace in life so in that way is decide to go BABA MAHAKAL favorite place Ujjain. Ujjain is situated on the right bank of River Shipra. It is a very holy city for the Hindus, a site for the triennial Kumbh Mela. According to Hindu scriptures, it was originally called Avantika. There is an interesting tale behind the sanctity of the city. Its origin is ascribed to the mythological legend of Sagar Manthan churning of the primordial ocean to discover the pot of nectar. The story goes that after the nectar was discovered, there was a chase between the gods and demons to have the nectar first and thus attain immortality. During this chase a drop of nectar spilled and fell on Ujjain, thus making the city sacred.apart from mythological legends, the city has a long and distinguished history. It was governed by the likes of Vikramaditya and Ashoka. Kalidas wrote his soul-stirring poetry here.     Today, Ujjain represents an interesting blend of an age-old legacy and the modern-day lifestyle.i was previously read about this beautiful place so decided to complete my trip in 2days with some special plans so firstly I decided to cover these places after checking in to my hotel   Mahakaleshwara:  This temple of Lord Shiva with its lingam is one of the 12 Jyotirlingas in India. It is also known as the shrine of Mahakaleshwara. The temple has an idol of Omkareshwara Shiva consecrated in the sanctum above the Mahakal shrine. The temple also has images of Ganesh, Parvati, Kartikeya and Shiva's Bull, Nandi. Bade Ganeshji ka Mandir:  There is a sculpted image of Lord Ganesh, in this temple, close to the tank near Mahakaleshwar. Chintamani Ganesh:  A temple of considerable antiquity and a popular place of pilgrimage, the idol here is believed to be self-formed. Bhartrihari Caves:  According to legend, the caves on the banks of the river Shipra near Gadkalika Temple are where the great scholar-poet Bhartrihari lived and meditated.after completing these majestic places I came back to my hotel have dinner and sleep. in the next morning, I bath, packed something eatables, and moved to the rest. Harsiddhi Temple:  Another important shrine with the image of Goddess Annapurna. Kal Bhairava:  The specialty of this temple is its intricate paintings in the Malwa style. Observatory:  The stars and the skies seemed fascinating in the 17th century too. That would perhaps explain the number of observatories that we have in India. Even this 17th-century observatory has a planetarium and a telescope. Vikram Kirti Mandir:  This mandir has the Scindia Oriental Research Institute, an archaeological museum, and an art gallery. A cultural center, it is dedicated to the memory of King Vikramaditya - the much-honored King of Ujjain. Gopal Mandir:  A sanctum inlaid with marble and silver-plated doors constitute the main attraction of this temple. Navagraha Mandir:  The ruling planets have always had an important place in Indian rituals and tradition. This temple is dedicated to the nine ruling planetsNavagraha means nine planets. It is located on the Triveni Ghat of the Shipra river. one thing finally came to my mind after my trip to the Ujjain that if you want real peace than religious or pilgrimage destinations are the best choice to go with like this one UJJAIN
