    Bhopal/ Ujjain: The city of Ujjain is known for its ancient temples. Revered as one of the seven holiest Hindu spots, Ujjain is visited year after year by millions of pilgrims.
    It is one of the four sites that host the Kumbh Mela (also called the Simhastha Mela), and is home to the Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga, one of the twelve Jyotirlinga shrines to Shiva. An ancient seat of learning, Ujjain is the place where Lord Krishna, along with Balarama and Sudama, received his education from Maharshi Sandipani.
    Its origin is ascribed to the myth of Sagar Manthan. The story goes that after the nectar was discovered, there was competition between the gods and the demons to have the nectar first so as to attain immortality. During this chase a drop of nectar spilled and fell on Ujjain, thus making the city sacred. According to legend, the river Kshipra that flows across Ujjain is regarded to have originated due to this churning.
