Today is a day of rest. The padyaatra was exhausting yesterday but the walkers are now refreshed, and hoping to explore the ancient city situated on the eastern bank of the Kshipra River. The city is a place of pilgrimage for Shaivites, Vaishnavites and followers of Shakta sects of Hinduism.

Ujjain is home to the Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga. Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga – dedicated to Lord Shiva, the ultimate Lord of destruction –is one of the most famous Hindu temples and is one of the twelve Jyotirlingams, which are stated to be the most sacred abodes of Lord Shiva. The temple is situated on the side of the Rudra Sagar lake. The presiding deity, Lord Shiva in the lingam form, is believed to be Swayambhu (manifested on its own) deriving currents of power (Shakti) from within itself as against the other images and lingams that are ritually established and invested with mantra-shakti. Ujjain is also home to many more temples of lesser renown and equal, if not more, significance. The padayaatris mostly spent the day in visiting local temples and resting.
