The video commences by describing this city of Kalidas as the 'City fallen from Heaven'. The video also suggests that ,the number of temples in the city of Ujjan is so large that if one comes here with two catloads of grain and offers only one handful at each temple, one would still run short of offerings. The video also mentions this ancient city which lies on the banks of river Shipra plays hosts to the Simhasth, famously known as the Kumbh Mela, every 12 years. One of the saptapuris, or the seven holy cities of India, it is supposed to grant moksha or liberation from the cycle of birth and death.
