  • This is the temple where I visited in 2015. The environment of the temple is awesome and peaceful. When you enter in the temple then you feel internal calmness. That time I visited many temples in Ujjain and this temple is most famous in all. This is historical and and very ancient. Here security is very tight and you are not allowed to took mobile and other things with yourself.
  • Few places of Hinduism, which still hold the power to connect you to that old, ancient and mystical grandeur. Try to spend some time there in the evening when the entire township comes alives which, lamps, chantings and bells. Has a deep calming effect on the subconscious.
