There was a time when Ujjain was considered to be centre of great learning, thus a lot of people used to come here to learn. According to mythologies, Lord Krishna and Sudama received regular instruction in the ashram of Rishi Sandipani which was present in Ujjain. There is an interesting story to this site. When the Guru was asked to order his Guru Dakshina by Krishna and Balarama, the sage asked him to restore his son, lost in the ocean at Prabhaas. The Avatar of Vishnu, Lord Krishna came to know that Sandipani's son had been taken hostage by the demon Shankhasur (who lived in a shankh, or conch) beneath the ocean. Krishna and Balaram took the conch to Yama, who blew into the conch and Sandipani's son was extracted.

This site is steeped in mythologies and a visit to this place is a must to understand some aspects of Hindu belief.
