Pre-Islamic India proffered great admiration to peers and saints and it is also assumed that they have achieved spiritual realization through severe penitence. Matsyendra, a peer who belonged to the Natha cult of Saivism used to live on the border of Ujjain, and Pir Matsyendranath is devoted to the reminiscence of this great leader. This attractive shrine located on the bank of River Shipra is equally revered by the Hindus and Muslims. During the excavation of this site, it was found that some of the antiques dated back to 6th and 7th century. Although it does not have an unexceptional architectural work, but surely its simple white structure with a dome edged by little minarets on all the sides, endows a tranquil appeal to the surroundings.
