DAY 1:
I started from the Mahakaleshwar Temple.

It's the first tourist attraction place in Ujjain specially for Hindus. The temple was rushed by lots of 'Bhakt'. When i went there i came to know what the real artistic work is. As the architecture of the temple was so good and attractive as it tell us about the craftmenship of peoples across different timelines.

Inside the temple there was no hustle-bustle as everything seems silent accept chirping of birds. In the temple there are idols of god and goddesses. On the third floor there is a idol of Naagchandreshwar, where we can only go on Naag Panchami as the only day it is kept open. Inside the temple you will forget all your worries and feel peace.

After going to temple i realised that there is a pre - booking system for 'Bhasma-Aarti'. Bhasma-aarti was their at early morning 5a.m

For that people start forming a line at mid-night as there are hundreds of people in a queue for Bhasma Aarti darshan.

As there is so much crowd .

●There is a kind of VIP entry available for tourists only at rs.250/-.

Then i went to "Harsiddhi Temple"

Harsiddhi temple is one of the ShaktiPeeths of India. As the elbow of mata sati falls there.The Temple looks so beautiful at night when the lights are put on.
I liked the structure of the temple.

The temple is situated in between mahakaleshwar temple in the east and Ramghat in the west

Many lamps and Candles(Diyas) are flamed here which created a tremendous and divine scene. And infact if you people don't know let me tell you

In Harsiddhi Temple daily pujaris or person climb up in Deepmalikas and light 1000 lamps per day.

● If tourists wants in a group to light lamps from there side or they themselves want to climb and light diyas then they can visit temple and register their names .

•Registration charge - rs9000/-

And if you want join temple group member to light diyas then

•Registration charge - rs 2100/- only.

Then i moved to hotel for rest and food as i was so hungry near harsiddhi temple area. As in that area there are hundreds of hotels and dharamshalas for tourists.

Then after having some food and rest . I stepped to Kshipra river.

Ramghat is specially famous for kumbh mela.

It's situated at the bank of river shipra also known as Kshipra.

Ramghat is the most ancient bathing ghat.

At ramghat there are numbers of food stalls are centered. And in between the river there are fountains decorated with colourful lights.

At 8p.m aarti was done at ramghat by local pandits and pujaris on both sides of river.

There is a bridge to go to other side.

And boat for tourists and children attraction.

The boat charge is so minimal

●For children - 5rs

For adults - 10rs

In january kartik mela was also built near the shipra river.

So 2nd day I have started from a Healthy diet....!!!!

As if you people don't that UJJAIN is also famous for " mataka Kulfii".

The most famous kulfiii shop of ujjain is in Chhatri chowk gopal mandir near A mosque. The shop is owned by two brothers...have varieties of kulfi's. Here You will experience a perfect taste of Malwa.

Near the shop there is big and famous shopping market and a temple named gopal mandir.

The holi is most played in this area by the people. There is so much hustle-bustle in this area.

I ended up the day by doing shopping.
