The Harisiddhi Temple was built in honor of Goddess Harisiddhi and is one of the 51 Shaktipeetas across the country located near River Shipra. Legend has it that when Lord Shiva was performing the tandava while carrying Sati’s burning body, Vishnu released his chakra, which split her body to 51 parts. Devotees who flock to this temple believe that the Goddess’s elbow fell in Ujjain, where this temple was constructed by legendary King Vikramaditya. The idol of Mata Harshiddhi is beautiful and gives a truly divine feeling. The temple enshrines 3 Goddesses one on top of another, namely, Annapurna, the Goddess of nourishment, Mahasaraswati, the Goddess of wisdom and knowledge, and Mahalakshmi, the Goddess of wealth. The red sandstone temple is peculiar to the Maratha art of architecture.
