This is most worshiped temple of lord shiva in all over india. This temple is crowded throughout all the year. You cants miss the early morning arti(bhasma - arti : it is saying that ash of dead body used to do puja). You have to wear indian clothes to take parts in this procession of puja.

The Mahabaleshwar temple @ Ujjain is one of the Jyotirling's and a must visit place for devotees of Lord Shiva. The temple is large and security is well placed to see the devotees get to have a Darshan of the Almighty in an orderly manner.

Got a chance to visit this world famous temple during Kumbh fair time, the darshan was very quick by God's grace. People visiting Ujjain must visit this place and feel the experience of holiness and Godly ambiance

No feeling can describe the joy of visiting and offering prayers at Mahakal Mahadev. Attending shringar aartis provides beautiful experience. Beautiful temple with good arrangements. Since, I visited during non-festival period so not sure about the crowds during peak seasons. Darshan happen in the form of mukh darshan or by visiting the main sanctum sanctorum. Mukh darshan can be done... More

This temple is very mesmerizing, one has to witness the aarti here to feel that unforgettable trance like feeling, i felt there was some kind of special power & aura in this temple. This is one of the jyothirlingas & a must visit. There is a ritual of bhasm aarti at 4am everyday, though we did not get to witness... More

Went on a Friday evening so we didn't see a lot of rush.. we were lucky to go inside the shrine and pray.. usually they don't allow that... good selection of food joints outside the temple
