Harsiddhi Temple is a revered Hindu temple situated in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh, 2.5 kilometres from Ujjain Junction. It is one of the holiest temples in India and one of the most visited religious sites in Ujjain. Mahakal Temple is nearby.
One of Mata Sati’s 51 Shaktipeeths, Harsiddhi Temple is dedicated to the goddess Parvati. The temple is said to have been created when Lord Shiva carried Goddess Parvati’s body after she entered the fire of sacrifice and her elbow dropped here. In the middle of a huge temple complex, the main deity is painted a dark vermillion colour. The idols of the goddesses Annapurna, Mahalakshmi, and Mahasaraswati can also be visited by tourists.
There are Maratha elements in the temple’s architecture. The primary entrance is on the eastern side, and there are four entrances total, one in each direction. The temple also contains a shrine to the Sri Yantra, a representation of power or Shakti. These two pillars, which are distinctive examples of Maratha art, are ornamented with lighting. These lamps, which are lit during Navaratri, create a magnificent scene. There is a historic well on the property, and it is topped by a beautiful pillar.
The main celebration celebrated in the Harsiddhi Mata Temple is the nine-day Navratri festival, and the temple is decked with flowers and lights.
