Mahakaleshwar Temple



Located in the city of Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh, the Mahakaleshwar Jyothirlinga temple is one of the twelve sacred abodes of Lord Shiva. The temple is a three-storey complex which lies by the side of a lake called Rudra Sagar.
It is believed that the lingam form of Lord Shiva that is worshipped here was born of itself unlike other lingams which were enshrined or established. Also, another unusual thing about the Lingam is that it is south facing. Also there are other deities who are enshrined in the temple complex. The temple has five levels which includes the basement level too. The day of Mahashivaratri sees a huge fair that is held here near the temple and worshipping of the deity Lord Shiva goes for the night.
