4. Tapobhoomi of Siddhas
Ujjain has been the abode of many Siddhas and Gods. Here in the Garhkalika region, there is a Siddha Samadhi place of Guru Gorakhnath's Guru, Matsyendranath (Machhandranath), on the other hand, Jain Tirthankar Mahavir Swami also had a vihara in Ujjain.
Vikramaditya's brother Raja Bhartrihari had done penance in Bharthari cave. The cave belongs to Gopichand, the nephew of King Bhartrihari. In this way, there are many such places in Ujjain where sages had done penance. According to a Shrutikatha, Atri Rishi had done severe penance for three thousand years in Ujjayini. Therefore, this entire city is the land of penance.
5. Organizing Kumbh on the banks of Mokshadayini Kshipa river
There are many Siddha Kshetras of mythological times situated on the banks of Mokshadayini Shipra. Kshipra river, one of the four places of Kumbh, is the place where a drop of Amrit (divine nectar) spilled from the nectar urn. This is the reason Kumbh is organized here. The Kumbh mela here is called Simhastha. The glory of this river is described in detail in Vedas, Puranas and literature.
6. One of the five sacred banyans
Siddhavat is considered one of the four major ancient and holy Vats in Ujjain. Akshayavat, Vanshivat, Gayavat and Siddhavat are prominently described. Akshayvat in Prayag (Allahabad), Vanshivat in Mathura-Vrindavan, Gayavat in Gaya also known as Boudhvat and here in Ujjain there is the holy Siddhavat.
There are five ancient trees known as Panchavat near the cave of Sita Mata in the Panchvavati area of Nashik. Siddhavat is known as Shaktibheda Tirtha. The description of five banyan trees is found in Tirthadipika.
According to Skanda Purana, this Vat planted by Goddess Parvati is worshiped in the form of Shiva. Pind-Daan, Tarpan etc., is done at this place. After Gaya, it is also the main area of Pind-Daan.

According to Puranas, the saga of Mahakal temple and Gadkalika is related to Hanumanji. According to Shrutikatha, Lord Shri Ram's feet were lying at a place called Rudrasagar. The story of Ramghat is also related to this. Thirdly, in this ashram located here in Ankpat area, Lord Krishna-Sudama and Balramji had learned 14 Vidyas and 64 arts by studying according to the Gurukul tradition in the presence of their Guru Shri Sandipani Rishi.
Quote Of The Day
"The word Shiva means the deathless, changeless, timeless, formless all-pervading absolute essence of the universe."
Shri Krishna stayed here for 64 days and used to collect wood from the forest areas here. After completing his education, he went in search of his Guru's son and later again came to Ujjain with Guru's son.
8. Shree Mangalnath Temple
In Matsya Purana, the planet Mars has been called Bhumi-putra. Mythological belief is also that the birthplace of Mars is also here. Shri Mangalnathji is often worshiped for the peace of Mars, Shiva's grace, debt relief and wealth. There is special importance of worshiping rice and performing Rudrabhishek. This place is very important from the point of view of astrology and astronomy.
9. Queen of Nagarkot
Nagarkot ki Rani is the protector deity of the south-west corner of ancient Ujjayini. Many stories of King Vikramaditya and King Bhartrihari are associated with this place. This place is associated with the tradition of the Nath sect. This place is situated on the ancient raw ramparts of the city, hence it is called the queen of Nagarkot.
10. The city of Chakraborty Emperor Vikramaditya
Chakravarti Samrat in India is called the one who ruled not only in the whole of India but in many other regions of the world. The stories of Vikram Vetal and Singhasan Battisi are related to the great emperor Vikramaditya.
According to Vikram Samvat, Vikramaditya was born 2291 years before today (2020). Emperor Vikramaditya was born in 101 BC after 3000 years of Kali period. He ruled for 100 years. -(Geeta Press, Gorakhpur Bhavishyapuran, page 245).
Here, after Vikramaditya, any king gets the right to rule only when that king is mighty and just like Vikramaditya. Some people believe that this was the reason that Raja Bhoj had to make his capital at Dhar and Bhopal. It is said that there is only one king of Avantika i.e., Ujjain and that is Mahakal Baba.
No king can stay the night here. A separate place has been appointed outside Ujjain for his stay. Legend has it that any king who stays here for the night and if he is not truthful then troubles start in his life.
