The ancient city of Ujjain was characterised by the famed Sanskrit poet Kalidasa as “the town fallen from heaven to bring heaven to earth.”
This ancient city, located in the heart of Madhya Pradesh, is a maze of bustling streets that thread between temple clusters, earning it the moniker “the city of temples.” Ujjain is one of Hinduism’s seven sacred cities, situated on the banks of the holy Kshipra (Shipra) River, which hosts the world’s largest spiritual gathering, the Kumbh Mela, every 12 years. During Simhast Kumbh, which brings millions of devotees from all over the world to take a bath in the Kshipra River in the hope of being cleansed of their sins, the city is as beautiful as a bride.
Hindus also think that by doing so, they will be able to achieve moksha or freedom from the cycle of birth and death.
Many Hindu devotees travel to the Shipra River in Ujjain to participate in Asthi Visarjan, which is performed by Brahmin pandits or Hindu priests. Bathing here or sprinkling the ashes serves to bring peace to the souls of the departed in the family, according to the scriptures.
If the remaining family members perform the Asthi Visarjan, the departed’s soul will attain Moksha or salvation. In Ujjain, the Ram Ghat and the Siddhwat temple are the two most popular places for Asthi Visarjan.
Ujjain has a plethora of historical attractions to visit, including numerous temples and ancient buildings. The Mahakaleshwar Temple, dedicated to Lord Shiva, is the most well-known temple in Ujjain. It is one of India’s 12 Jyotirlingas (Shivas Lings).
Ujjain is a vast presentation of the cultural past as portrayed in the Vedas, as well as a religious spectacle, and is located in the enormous Indian state of Madhya Pradesh.
Ujjain is home to the mystical Shipra River. According to Hindu texts and epics, this body of water is one of the holy rivers.
By the banks of the flowing holy waters, Hindu religious activities are held. Pind Daan, a Hindu rite for the dearly departed and ancestors’ spirits, is usually held on these banks.
Hindu families travel to these places to perform rituals for deceased family members and pay honour to their ancestors, most notably at the Ram Ghat and the Siddhwat temple.
