UJJAIN - MAHAKALA JYOTIRLINGA

The Temple Complex

The famous temple of Mahakala lies in the heart of Ujjaini -situated beside a lake of unusual dimensions. And it is in front of Devi temple. This is a three-storied temple with a massive compound wall and a tower
beautified with sculptural adornment of many kinds. The archamurti is about 3 feet in height and its pedestal is made of brass and silver with artistic embellishments. The decoration of Mahakala with flowers and sandal paste feasts the eyes. The frontal view with sandal paste make up, beautified with two broad eyes between the long nose over the charming mouth, adorned by the twisted moustaches is quite enchanting, and the brass lamps lighting up the spacious garbha griha heighten the majesty of the Lord and leave an indelible impression on the minds of viewers. Its architectural design of antique type, huge dimensions of the courtyards with spacious verandahs and grand pavilions for several adorable deities detain the visitors for hours and lift their souls. There are certain strange traditions here -- one amongst such peculiar traditions is, whatever is offered to the Lord Mahakala can be offered again and again after duly washing.
