UJJAIN - MAHAKALA JYOTIRLINGA

Though Lord Maheswar is adored in several hundreds of places throughout the length and breadth of Bharatha Khand, it is here in Ujjaini, He is called. Mahakala for appearing in his role of destroyer. Agni Purana and Skanda eulogizing the sacredness of this thirtha kshetra conclude that a 'mere darsan of Mahakala liberates the pious person and saves him from akalamrityu -- untimely death. The God bestows on the devout bhaktas Salokya prapti -- living in the same loka; Sarupyamukti assuming the form of the Lord, Sameepya sakti - living in the proximity of the Lord and finally Sujyamukti - merging in the Lord, according to the desire of the adorers. Being the bestower of all kinds of muktis, particularly freeing the adorers from untimely and accidental death - akala mrityu, He has been ascending in supremacy with the passage of time sans break, since installation.
