Ujjain (Travel Guide)
Description
About the Book

Ujjain Travel Guide takes the reader on a spiritual journey to this temple town whose reality is as fascinating as the legends that surround it. Located on the western edge of the Malwa plateau in Madhya Pradesh, Ujjain is one of the oldest cities in India, tracing back its antiquity to 6th century BC. Indeed, Ujjain has been home to the famous Sanskrit poet, Kalidas and the acclaimed mathematician, Varahamihira.

This guidebook explores Ujjain through its rich past and its numerous temples, both old and new. Visit the majestic Mahakaleshwar Temple, one of the twelve jyotirlingas; Harsiddhi Temple, a shaktipeeth; the numerous ghats along the Shipra; the astronomical observatory or Ved Shala; the sprawling Kaliadeh palace complex and many more gems in this ancient city.

The book has a well-researched section on Ujjain’s history and its impact on Indian culture and traditions. It goes on to explore its continuing significance with a poignant description of the legacy of the Simhastha held on the banks of the sinuous Shipra river once every twelve years.

It also includes excursions to historical sites nearby including Maheshwar, Omkareshwar and Indore.

With over a hundred stunning photographs and maps, and an up-to-date Practical Information section, this guidebook is a perfect companion for not just the intrepid tourist but also the armchair traveller.
