Siddhavat Overview

Ranked 25 of 47 sightseeing in Ujjain

Siddhavat is a huge banyan tree that has flourished on the bank of River Shipra and holds immense religious importance, like the Akashyavat in Prayag and Gaya and the Panchavat of Nasik. A good number of pilgrims take a dip in River Shipra from the bathing ghat built at the place. The site was popular as the worshipping place of the followers of the Natha sect.

It is said that the Mughal rulers cut off the banyan tree and they covered the entire area with iron sheets to restrict the growth of the tree. However, this sacred tree pierced the iron sheets and flourished significantly. There is a hamlet near Siddhavat, called Bhairogarh, which is renowned for its tie and dye painting for decades.

Dirty place

Although the place has its mystery past, but there is no cleanliness allover. Not worth to go. Panda & there so called Jyotish shops try to loot people. Negative vibes are everywhere. No administration, no hygiene. No toilet, No proper shed. Street animals wandering everywhere.

A place to say we will miss you our beloved

This place is famous to do after death formalities. People come here and do pind donation. You will find this place bit crowed as compared to other places. People sits in line and have there hairs removed and do some mantrocharans and say their parents to rest in peace.

Average place

If you visit Ujjain this place can be seen as included in the tour itinerary of the local tour. Not worth visiting the 2nd time you are in Ujjain. The place is for doing pitru puja

Temple for Banian Tree

Siddhavat is an old Banian tree on the banks of Kshipra river and has a great religious importance. Pilgrims take a dip in the Kshipra river. This place was also a popular worshipping place of Nath sect.Long ago Moghul rulers cut off the Banian tree and covered the whole area with iron sheet to prevent its growth. But this tree pierced the iron sheet and flourished wonderfully.So a temple was built and this tree is worshipped with great reverence.
