       BHAGAVAN MAHAKALA OF AVANTIKA

And the birth place of historical personages such as Devi, the wife of Asoka samrat and the mother of Mahendra and Sanghamitra, Vasuvadatha, the beauty queen of those days; the sacred place where the Kumbha Mela has been taking place once in every 12 years; the seat of famous gurukula, where Krishna, Balarama and Sudhama had their education under Sandipini; it was the place, where the great nine gems of Vikramaditya flourished who immortalised its fame through several media and finally it is the Greenwich of the first meridian or zero degree.

Renowned as a unique thirtha kshetra in all the Kalpas, eulogised by the immortal creative artistes, patronised by historical personages, ruled by the history makers, and inhabited by mahamaneeshis and Vignana bhaskaras in every branch of known knowledge, beautified by gigantic monuments, visited by a long list of eminent foreign travelers, this famous city established world fame and carved a niche in the history of India, instrumental in luring lakhs of persons throughout the year. Aren't they due to the presiding deity, the Lord Mahakaleswar, whose sports elevated its glory to the pinnacle of glory and perched it there permanently since its coming into being?
