Ujjain is compared to the Greenwich of India due to the fact that the first meridian of longitude passes through it. According to Indian astronomers, passing of the Tropic of Cancer through the picturesque city of Ujjain gives it a pulsating energy that makes the pilgrim journeys of people
a spiritual revelation.
Every 12 years, during the Kumbh Mela, along the city’s elaborate riverside ghats, Goddess Kshipra, which symbolizes purity, clarity and chastity, is worshipped by thousands and thousands of devotees.
