Ujjain, India


City in India

"Ujjain initially seems like an outpost of Indore \u2013 a nondescript city where sadhus squatting on the pavement are occasional flashes of colour. But sit at a chai stand on the ghats at sunset, alongside fellow customers clapping along with the music drifting across the water, and it becomes clear what has drawn the sadhus. An energy undeniably pulses through the temples \u2013 perhaps because of their Hindu significance or perhaps because the Tropic of Cancer runs through Ujjain. The holy."
