       BHAGAVAN MAHAKALA OF AVANTIKA

It is but natural, the places where they descended were converted into burial grounds. The animate and inanimate crushed under the dead weight of the cities were going out of existence. The affected, humans and devas unable to bear the loss of all and also fearing further deaths prayed to Lord Brahma for putting an end to them. Expressing his inability, he took them to Lord Maheswar. Though sympathized their lot, he too pleaded his inability, but volunteered to give half of his strength to whosoever readily volunteered to accomplish their request. Lord Brahma renewed his promise of offering of all that required for the asura samhara. Moved by the pathetic lot of the petitioners, Maheswar accepted. Accordingly Lord Brahma made the earth to transform itself into a big chariot with the sun and moon as wheels, the Vedas as stead's, and he - himself as Charioteer. Lord Maheswar thus provided went to battle field. The three wicked demons forgetting the condition, joined together and faced the Lord in the field. Though they put forth their energy undeterred, they proved no match to the Lord, who using Pasupathastra floored them easily. The victory was monumental and relieved the world from the ever worrying problem. That fierce battle was fought here and the Lord was hailed as the victor unparalleled. So the gods named the place Ujjain - the Victorious.
