In this talk I am going to survey a class of translational symmetry broken Mott states which has been recently experimentally realized using ultracold bosonic atoms in optical lattices. The theoretical prediction and experimental realization of such states using ultracold bosons shall be charted out. This will be followed by a discussion of their out-of-equilibrium dynamics which would reveal the potential of such ultracold boson systems to serve as experimental platform for realization of several dynamical phenomena such Kibble-Zureck scaling and dynamic freezing.
