In the ancient city of Ujjain, on the banks of the Kshipra river, stands the swayambhu – self-formed Shivalinga, in the archaic Mahakaleshwar temple. Built in the 6th century, the temple is considered the most powerful among the 12 Jyotirlingas of Lord Shiva. It is also worshipped as one among the 18 Maha Shakti Peethas in India.
The land of Ujjain is considered holy because it is here that Lord Krishna and his brother Balarama received their education from the great sage Sandipani. It is here that the pious Sinhasta fair is held – on the banks of the river Kshipra.
In an interesting ritual, fresh ash is smeared all over the deity as a sacred ritual every morning at 4 a.m. – this is known as the Bhasm arti. Another interesting practice is that no one holding a position power or no one from the royal family is allowed to stay the night in Ujjain – it is believed that there is only one king – Mahakal. So no other king or equivalent head of state stays the night in Ujjain, respecting this tradition.
