    Default Guess the Name of the Place!

    Friends,

    Let us recollect the days when we were all thrilled to play Name, Place, Animal, Thing!

    We have to bring in the same excitement here too.

    It will not only increase the general knowledge of the readers, it will also help us to brush up our Geography.



    This place is famous for its Jagannath Temple. It has its annual Rath Festival. People throng from all the corners of the world to watch the majestic Gods in chariots.

    Where is this temple situated.

    Dear Bhawna..
    u r absolutely right..
    Place is Ujjain..in MP. jyotirlings name is 'Mahakaleshwar'.. kahte hai din ke 12 baje surya ki kirne sidhe mandir ke shikhar n shivlinga per padti hai..

    The king was 'Vikramaditya' and vampire 'Vetal'..
    vetal pacchisi is book contains stories of vikram-vetal stories. I think Vikram samvat is also name after raja vikramaditya.. he had nine gems in his darbaar.
