Mahakaleshwar temple in Ujjain

It was a thrilling and enchanting experience to be at the Mahakal temple. The most important arati is called bhasma arati in the morning and only the really fortunate ones can witness it that too during the kumbh mela.

During the arati I saw many different avataras of Mahakal. It made me realise that finally we will be dissolved into ashes at the feet of shiva, he being the final destination of this life.

Many different sadhus and bawas came to attend this arati and their presence made it even more interesting to be there.

After performing arati we also performed shiv puja in the temple premises.
