In Ujjain (MP)..there is a temple built exactly on the latitude - Tropic of Cancer.

I have been there personally and you do sense some kind of energy passing through your body.

I wonder if it has anything to do with this prominent Latitude.

Can anyone give a scientific explanation?

In all likelihood, such a feeling is a mind-thing. The tropic-lines are imaginary. They only mark the maximum distances sunlight falls on, when the sun is at the opposite side (North or South).

As such, there shouldn't be any energy-zone here. Besides, it is one huge strip that runs right around the globe. So if any such thing were to occur, it would happen anywhere along the entire stretch, be it a temple or an abattoir.

Incidentally, that reminds me, did you know that the Qutub Minar is the only recorded structure that does not cast it's shadow at noon on 21st June?

The Qutub Minar is tilted at 5 degrees to the vertical.

On the 21st of June (or rather- by 21st June), the earth's axis tilts by 5 degrees, making the Minar perfectly upright.

Because it is braoder at the base than at the top, at 12 noon, when the sun is overhead, there is no shadow!

The Qutub was used as an astronomical observatory. Whether the 5-degree tilt is deliberate or by accident, is not known.
