About hundred years ago, British scientists had researched and introduced an imaginary line, which is called as trophic of cancer. In this research, they found that Ujjain city (Madhya Pradesh) falls on this trophic of cancer. Thus Ujjain is believed as one of the center points of the earth. Thus scientists regularly visit Ujjain to research and study about the sun and space. This city has one more miracle that everybody should know. The distance pattern from Ujjain city to the other remaining Maha Jyotirling (cities of devotional representation of Lord Shiva) temples in India is indeed an interesting one! All these distances are in three repetitive digits (example 777 kms, 111 kms etc) except Rameshwaram Temple where the distance is in four digit, however the distance figure still contains three repetitive digits at the end (1999 kms).
