Situated on the banks of Sipra, it is a thirtha kshetra, advocated for thirtha yatra. Of the many plus points, historically and mythologically, its importance as the seat of Lord Mahakala tops the list and won crowing glory to the place, followed by many others, such as, it is the sixth of the twelve Jyotirlingas; and also the sixth of the eighteen Sakthipithas; the dominating capital of valorous monarchs, like Vikramadithya, the founder of Vikramarka Saka, King Pradyota of Swapnavasavadatta fame, Jayasimha, the builder of observatory, Munja and Bhoja of great renown; and the birth place of historical personages, such as Devi, the wife of Asoka samrat and the mother of Mahendra and Sanghamitra, Vasavadattha, the beauty queen of those days; the sacred place where the Kumbha Mela has been taking place once in every 12 years; the seat of famous Gurukula, where Krishna, Balarama and Sudhama had their education under Sandipini; it was the place where the great nine gems of Vikramaditya flourished, who immortalized its fame through several media, and finally it is the Greenwich of the first meridian of zero degree.
