Religious Significance of Ujjain
Religious significance of Ujjain: The beautiful city of Ujjain, which lies on the banks of the winding Kshipra River (also Shipra river), is one of the holiest spots in India.
According to legend, it was here that Lord Shiva vanquished a wicked demon named Tripura. Hundreds of thousands of Hindu pilgrims from all corners of the country visit Ujjain every year and bathe at the picturesque ghats on the banks of the Kshipra.
Once in twelve ears the mammoth Kumbh Mela festival is held at Ujjain. The story of its origin is similar to that of Prometheus and other ancient legends concerning the fight between good and evil.
