(also known as Ujain, Ujjayini, Avanti, Avantikapuri) is an ancient city of the Malwa region in Central India, which lies on the eastern bank of the Shipra River, and is today part of the state of Madhya Pradesh. 
In ancient times the city was called Ujjayini. As mentioned in the Mahabharata epic, Ujjayini was the capital of the Avanti Kingdom, and has been the Prime Meridian for Hindu geographers since the 4th century BCE.

Ujjain is one of the seven (7) sacred cities (Sapta Puri) of the Hindus, and the Kumbh Mela religious festival is held there every 12 years. It is also home to Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga Temple, which is one of the twelve Jyotirlinga shrines to Lord Shiva, and is also the place where Lord Krishna got his education from his guru Maharshi Sandipani.
