Traveling in India Experiences: Ujjain

Ujjain, October 2009 – 4 hour drive from Bhopal.

Ujjain: The Kshipra river. One of the four Kumbh Mela teerthas

I have a fascination for rivers. This is Kshipra, flows from the Vindhyas into the Chambal in central India. The town of Ujjain is also host to one of the four Kumbha Mela.  And like holy rivers, extremely polluted. One can make a simple law: pollution of a river is directly proportional to the holiness of the river.

I had earlier blogged about having bhang in Ujjain.
