“Ujjain” which is known as Mahakal ki Nagri or by google maps as city of temples is majorly famous due to  Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga temple and Kumbh Mela which happens every 12 years. A random thought stuck my mind that every city has its own kind of specialty over food, So here I am bringing you curated list of places you must visit which was crossed checked by the locals of Ujjain for having great food

Its said when you visit Ujjain for the first time or you are about to start something new, the first thing is visit Mahakal and btw I did covered these places with a local influencer from Ujjain Shreya Rathode
