Events and Festivals in Ujjain

Ujjain is a holy city that attracts a lot of religious devotees from pan India. Most of the festivals that take place here are purely religious in nature.

  • Kumbh Mela: One of the grandest festivals of India, the KumbhMela is a month-long fair attended by thousands of Hindu devotees. This fair is held every 12 years, beginning on the full moon in the month of Chaitra (March-April) when Jupiter is in Scorpio and the Sun is in Aries.
  • Ujjain Ardha Kumbh (half Kumbh): Falling after 6 years, this Kumbh Mela is of equal religious importance and nestles a lot of legends and myths with it. According to Indian mythologies, Ujjain was one of the places where a drop of nectar fell after it fell from the heaven during the tug of war between Gods and Demons. Other places are Prayag(Allahabad), Nasik, and Hardwar.
  • Shivratri: Mahashivratri is celebrated here with full gusto and devotion. Celebrated in the month of February or March, this festival is observed with keeping fast and offering milk to the linga.
