Mahakaleshwar Ujjain Jyotirlinga
The shivling covered with a glass box is Jyotirlinga. Devotees can give milk and Prasad(food offered to god). There is a separate place where milk can be poured into the shivling. As this is not allowed to go inside the chamber of a jyotirlinga, you can only see it from a distance. Then after waiting for a few minutes, we pray to god and move on. This temple has very well maintenance and organization that attracts tourists.
Tilak with Om looks very good. I like it. This mahakaleshwar temple is also famous for “Bhang” which you can get near to this temple. It’s intoxicated to try this. We took half-doze in two glasses. Hindu religion allows this but, with some conditions. It is the most popular Prasad of lord shiv. But, Make sure about your safety if thinking to try this.
Tip- Take this on your own risk. Bhang is a mixture of herbs which is a must-try whenever you visit this temple.
