Ujjain one of the seven sacred Hindu cities in India

Ujjain is the ancient city of Madhya Pradesh and an important Hindu pilgrimage destination

Ujjain sacred city of India is located in the state of western Madhya Pradesh, central India. It is located on the Malwa Plateau on the eastern side of the Sipra (Shipra) River, a tributary of the Chambal River.
Ujjain is one of the seven sacred Hindu cities. Its name comes from the Sanskrit jai ("victory").
Every year hundreds of thousands of pilgrims come to bathe in the sacred waters of the river; every twelve years the KUMBHA MELA is celebrated which attracts a million faithful.
The River Ghats are teeming with pilgrims: women in saris, people burning incense, others throwing garlands and flowers on the river and some feeding lentils to turtles.
The history of the city dates back to ancient temples when it was a viceroyalty of Ashoka and was also the capital of Vikramaditiya, the legendary founder of the Samvat era.
Near the Ghats is the Jantar Mantar, the partially ruined Astronomical Observatory built by Man Singh 2nd in 1733.
About 8km north of the city is the restored palace of the Sultans of Mandu which was also the residence of the Maharajas of Gwalior when they came to visit.
In the surroundings of Ujjain there are numerous temples and sacred places on the banks of the Sipra river, including for example the various temples dedicated to planetary deities such as Shani (Saturn), Mangalam (Mars) and Navgraha (the Nine Planets), further evidence of the permanence in situ of the ancient Hindu cosmological tradition.
