Mahakaleshwar Temple, Madhya Pradesh

Been there recently?

Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga is a Hindu temple, located on the bank of the holy river Shipra in the ancient city of Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh. It is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is one of the twelve Jyotirlingas – shrines that are considered to be the most sacred abodes of Shiva. The lingam at Mahakaleshwar, a representation of Lord Shiva, is thought to be swayambhu, or self-manifested, and it is housed in a subterranean chamber. The present temple was built in the middle of the 18th century and has five stories. The temple is a work of architectural wonder that was constructed in the Bhumija, Chalukya, and Maratha styles. Notable features include the marble walkways, which the Scindias restored in the second half of the 19th century. Mahakaleshwar, Omkareshwara, and Nagchandreshwar lingams are located on the third, fourth, and fifth floors of the structure, respectively. Only on the occasion of Naga Panchami is the Nagachandresvara lingam accessible to devotees. Additionally, there is a kunda (tank) on the property known as Koti Tirtha that was constructed in the Sarvatobhadra style. There are several images of the temple’s original structure, which depicts its grandeur between the ninth and fourteenth centuries, along the path leading from the kunda’s stairs to the temple. The temple, which is close to Rudra Sagar, hosts a unique Bhasma Arti for which devotees arrive as early as 4 a.m. The lit diyas are a beautiful sight, and there is a positive energy in the air.
