Ujjain is considered to be the place of learning and knowledge since the Vedic period. A famous ashram, Sandeepani Ashram is located there and is said to be one where Lord Krishna and his bosom friend, Sudhama studied under the guidance of Sandeepani, the great sage. Ankapata, where Lord Krishna is said to have cleansed his tablet which he used for writing is located closeby. There is a stone on which Guru Sandipani is said to have inscribed the numbers from 1 to 100. This place is considered holy by its association with Lord Krishna and attracts people with its exciting folktales.

"No Ankapata, in Sandipani Ashram"

  • 1.0/7
  • Posted Jul 27, 2015
It is believed that Ankapata or the slate which Lord Krishna used is still there in Sandipani ashram. But when enquired in Ashram nobody knew the existence of such Ankapata, it may be a Mythological statement.
