Banganga Water Tank in Chintaman Ganesha Temple in Ujjain

Bangana water tank is a sacred water body in the premises of Chintaman Ganesha Temple in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. The water tank is associated with Ramayana.

Legend has it that Lord Ram, Mata Sita, Lakshman and Hanuman rested here when they were returning from Lanka to Ayodhya after annihilating demon Ravana and his army.

To quench their taste, Lakshman dug out water using his arrow. It is said that Ganga River appeared to quench the taste of Ram Parivar.

This is the reason why the water tank is known as Banganga.
