It is the administrative centre of Ujjain District and Ujjain Division.In ancient times the city was called Ujjayini. As mentioned in the Mahabharata epic, Ujjayini was the capital of the Avanti Kingdom, and has been the Prime Meridian for Hindu geographers since the 4th century BCE. Ujjain is one of the seven sacred cities (Sapta Puri) of the Hindus, and the Kumbh Mela religious festival is held there every 12 years. It is also home to Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga, one of the twelve Jyotirlinga shrines to the god Shiva and is also the place where Lord Krishna got education with Balarama and Sudama from Maharshi Sandipani.The earliest references to the city, as Avantika, are from the time of the Buddha, when it was the capital of the Avanti Kingdom. Since the 4th century B.C. the city has marked the first meridian of longitude in Hindu geography. It is also reputed to have been the residence of Ashoka (who subsequently became the emperor), when he was the viceroy of the western provinces of the Mauryan empire.

Nagarkot Ki Rani is the guardian deity of the south-west corner of ancient Ujjayini. This is a place of some archaeological importance.Many popular tales of Vikramaditya and Bharatrihari as also traditions of Natha cult are associated with this place.

The  tank facing the temple is of Parmar-period. Both the sides of the tank  have two small temples. The idol of Kartikeya in one of the temples is  assigned to Gupta-period. The temple is situated on the ancient mud  rampart and hence  known as  the queen of the city wall (Nagarkot Ki Rani)
