The vip Darshan should be coordinated. The place may have its historical significance but in terms of Darshan, it iwas a very poor experience. Felt cheated to watch the shiv linga from second floor.

Amazing Vibe and Great Experience!

- Went for Darshan at 8pm and it was really quick

- BHASMA AARTI : Its the main highlight of the place and one must pre register for it on the temple’s official website, it starts at 4am and goes on till 6.15am

- Dhoti for males and Saree for Females is mandatory if you intend to visit and offer prayers in the Garbh Grah and also for the Bhasm Aarti

- The newly inaugurated Mahakal Lok Corridor is mesmerizing and has an amazing vibe (crowd is an issue but you really can’t help it until you are the CM)

- The energy of Mahakaal is something different and too powerful, would recommend to meditate there for 5-10mins to feel it

We visited Shree Mahakaleshwar Temple during late evening, thus avoiding the crowd. The temple access is very streamlined. One must also visit the adjacent Mahakal Lok.

This is one of the foremost Shrine of Lord Shiva in India . Many thousands of devotees flock to the Temple every day . The early morning Darshan at 4 AM is a elaborate ritual here one feels the Divine Presence of the Lord Shiva .

Midnight Pooja wiith Sacred Ash from Burial Grounds earlier and now, Ash made within the temple is the special occasion that takes one to a trance feel. Visiting in other hours is also special, especially when one can get near the Shivallinga and pour water, get to touch the lingam and pray right then and there. It was so thrilling and a the experience is not definable. One should experience it. It was a once in a life time opportunity.

One of the 12 jyotirlingas and less than 1.5 kms from ujjain railway station. You need to be lucky to get a chance to attend BHASHMA AARTI. Its very crowded during Shrawan Month. Temple is sacred with lots of positivity which you will feel at MAHAKALESHWAR premises.
