Triveni Ghat

Triveni Ghat

The temple of Navagraha, dedicated to the nine planets, located on the Triveni Ghat of Shipra, is a significant pilgrimage site in Ujjain. Pilgrims are drawn to this temple, and it holds prominence in the religious itinerary of visitors.

Triveni Ghat is the site where the Khan River confluences with the Shipra River. Additionally, the ghat is associated with the mythological sanctity of the invisible river Saraswati, which adds to its significance. The confluence point is considered sacred in Hindu tradition, and it attracts devotees for rituals and prayers.

It’s mentioned that the Khan River, known by different names around Indore, contributes to the Triveni Sangam (confluence of three rivers) near the Triveni Ghat on the Shipra. However, the current status mentions that the Khan River’s water quality, upstream and affected by irrigation, is not deemed suitable for welcoming into the Shipra.

Despite the changes in the rivers’ course and water quality, the Triveni Ghat and Navagraha temple continue to be cultural and religious landmarks, reflecting the rich tapestry of traditions in Ujjain.
