Krsna and Balarama’s Gurukula

From the camera of Indradyumna Swami (on Facebook)

Ujjain is called Avantipur in the ancient scriptures. It is where Krsna and Balarama attended the Gurukula of their teacher Sandipani-muni. The lake Krsna and Balarama bathed in is still there, as well as the kunda that Sandipani-muni bathed in daily. When Srila Bhaktisiddhanta Saraswati visited the sacred place he requested an asrama be established for his celibate students there. Many pilgrims visit daily to have darsan and remember the blissful pastimes of Krsna and Balarama.
