Shri Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga in Ujjain

Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga, a magnificent and miraculous place that is amongst the most renowned Hindu temples dedicated to Lord Shiva and is one of the twelve Jyotirlingams, which are the most sacred abodes of Lord Shiva located in the spiritual and ancient city of Ujjain.

The temple complex is huge with multiple small dainties inside the temple. Immense peace and refreshing atmosphere which makes one forget all the tiredness and loose grip over time. You should touch the shrine first to fell the same inside you.

Special in Shri Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga: One must get up early and reach temple complex as early as 3 am to attend the famous The Bhasm Aarti.
