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.
