A small tip regarding NTES Updates for the stations "Lake Gardens" and "Tollygunge"....
As there is no mechanism of feeding live data about trains at Lake Gardens and Tollygunge Railway Stations, so updates for both the stations are fed from "Mile 5B Cabin" situated just at the end of Lake Gardens Station platform towards Tollygunge Side.
NTES Updates for both the stations are displayed as shown in the picture. The updates for the train reaching Lake Gardens and Tollygunge Stations are merged as "Fiveb" indicating that the train has crossed the "Mile 5B Cabin".
If the train is moving towards Budge Budge, the next update will be of the train reaching New Alipur (Calcutta) Station.
If the train is moving towards Sealdah, the next update will be of the train reaching Ballygunge Station.

Ujjain is one of the underrated religious city of India. Few historical references for this city are listed below -
For Devotees -
1) Sinhasth (Kumbh) mela at every 12 years, last held in April-2016, mainly to take a bath / dip in river Shipra (most famous ghats are - Ram ghat / Narsingh ghat). And, the reason for sinhasth to be organizated in Ujjain as one of the four place is, during sagar manthan, drops of nectar had falllen in Ujjain too.
Mahakaleshwar Temple, which is one of the 12 jyotirlinga & only one facing towards south. Morning Bhasma aarti is treat to watch, thought you may need to book in advance and online booking option is available for that. Booking has to be done atleast a day in advance, can be done through temple counter, may need to spend hours in queue. So, online booking would be the best option. Rudrasagar pond adds beauty to this temple. Nearby temples (all walkable) to visit are Bade ganesh mandir, Harsidhi temple, Santohi mata mandir, Char dham temple, Ram mandir, Gopal mandir. Distance from Ujjain railway station is 1 KM.

(ii) Kalbhairav / vikrant bhairav temple (Most curios temple among tourist as lord Bhairav drink madira/wine)
(iii) Sidhanath temple (Temple famous for pind daan rituals), situated on the bank of river shipra.
4) Pirmatsyendranath samadhi sthal - Another place on the bank of river shipra, one of the greatest saint who has achieved maximum level of control over the Indriya. Nearby temples to visit are Gadh-kalika mata temple (enjoy bite of tamarind / plum), Bharthari caves (caves are must watch), Rinmukteshwar mahadev. Distance from Ujjain railway station is 3 KM.
5) Jantar mantar (Onservatory) - Its one the four observatory in India, other 2 which are opration now are in Delhi and Jaipur. It was constructed in 17th century. Distance from Ujjain railway station is 1.5 KM
6) One might have read the Vikram baital story, idol of King Vikramaditya with 32 putli can be seen just behind Harsiddhi temple.
For Foodies - You should not miss to taste Ice cream / Kulfi from Famous shop (Gopal mandir / Mahakaleshwar) & Poha Jalebi at railway station. Try some namkeen from Bafna shop (sati gate, Gopal mandir area), Kachori (Dhaba road, Gopal mandir area)

Going to Mahakaleshwar Temple Come out from PF1 exit, many autos and Rickshaws available, RS.10 per head. If you are alone or with a friend Deposit your bags in cloak room and then you can go on a walk to temple. Bags and Mobile phones are no allowed inside temple so plan accordingly. Many Flower shop owners will ask you to keep your bags and mobiles there they will not charge but they will ask you to buy Flowers,Milk Which will cost you 60Rs.
Opposite to station (Pf1 exit) you can see Two namkeen shops, you can have Tea,Poha, Kachori, Jalebi,Gulab Jamun, Samosa etc.
station you will get Poha as breakfast.
Going to Bhopal ? , Come out from PF1 exit take a city bus to main bus stand , Direct buses are not frequently available so go to Dewas ,from there you can get buses to Bhopal . If your train goes to Dewas better change there.
