Harsiddhi Temple




Harsiddhi Temple is an ancient shrine located in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. The temple enshrines a dark vermilion colored idol of Goddess Annapurna, seated between the idols of Goddess Lakshmi and Goddess Saraswathi. Shri Yantra, the symbol of power or Shakti, is also enshrined in the temple.

Harsiddhi Temple was reconstructed during the Maratha period. The fine architectural specimens of the Marathas can be seen on the walls and pillars of the temple. There are two pillars adorned with lamps; the lamps lit during Navratri present a glorious spectacle.

According to Shiva Purana, this is the place where Goddess Satiís elbow fell while Lord Shiva carried away the burning body of Sati from the sacrificial fire.

Ujjain Junction Railway Station is the nearest railhead.
