UJJAIN - MAHAKALA JYOTIRLINGA

Introduction

Lord Maheswar, the Karunaikasindhu in His fiercest aspect of destroyer is adored as Mahakala - the samharakartha at Avantika. It is a standing testimony of the universal truth that compassion embodies in itself annihilation too. Avantika became one of the premier metropolitan cities of ancient India and trailed a blaze of light across the pages of history due to Lord Maheswar's taking His seat here in this role, and He is still continuing so, as evidenced by certain relics in the form of sculptural monuments, besides adorning the pages of literature with purple patches of descriptions of infinite variety by immortal poets such as Kalidasa, Bana etc., whose creative artistry invested the place with grandeur that surpassed Amaravathi, the first word in the inimitable grandiose splendour. This city went by the magniloquent name of Ujjayini -- the victorious city in mythology, Ujjaini in history, Avanti in literary master-pieces and Ozene in the travelogues of foreigners. The history of its past is vast and magnificent.
