Mahakal Lok Corridor
launch by PM MODI
Prime Minister Narendra Modi is to inaugurate the Mahakaleshwar Corridor, constructed in Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain.
The Mahakaleshwar Temple is one of the 12 'jyotirlings' in the country and gets devotees throughout the year.
Mahakal Lingam is believed to be Swayambhu (self-manifested) and unlike any other jyotirlingas in the country, the idol of Mahakaleshwar faces south.
Bhasma-aarti is the first ritual conducted at the temple in the morning to wake the god, anoint (apply oil) and make the first offering of fire for him.
