Kaliadeh Palace in Ujjain – Sun Temple in Ujjain

Kaliadeh Palace is located on an island in Shipra River in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. As per Skanda Purana, there was a temple dedicated to Surya, or Sun God, on the island. But it was destroyed by invaders who came from west. Kaliadeh Palace is situated around 8 km from Ujjain Railway Station.


Remains of the old temple are scattered on the island. The temple was later converted into a palace.
The central dome of the palace is a beautiful example of Persian architecture.

The palace was broken down during the 18th century by treasure hunters and thugs. It was restored by Madhav Rao Scindia in 1920.
Currently the Sun Temple is located at the center of the palace.

Real control over the mind comes with the realization that everything is Vasudeva – Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswati Mahaswamiji

A fasting man or a man suffering from fever is not attracted by sweet music of delicious food. His mind is not tempted. This does not mean that these desires have completely disappeared from his mind. When the fast is broken or when the fever subsides, the mind is again tempted by these attractions. This shows that the desires remain latent like embers under ashes.

It follows that by merely fasting or observing other forms of penance, one cannot master the sense organs and control the mind. It may appear as if these had been mastered; but at the first trial of strength, the mind will succumb to temptations.

Therefore, it is that Bhagavan has emphasized more than once in the Bhagavad Gita that anyone desiring to acquire true knowledge and understand the Swaroopa of the Paramatma must surrender himself to Him.

Fasting and other forms of discipline create a proper atmosphere for self-control; but complete self-control can be acquired only through grace of God.
Real control over the …
