About Maa Gadkalika Mandir, Ujjain

Located in the outskirts of Ujjain, the Gadkalika teple is devoted to one of the Hindu goddesses, Kalika. This is the same Goddess who is supposed to be the Goddess of poet Kalidas. This is considered to be the same temple where Kalidasa got his boon from the deity. Although this temple is not very old, it is supposed to be at the same site where the earlier temple was present. The ancient temple of Kalika was reconstructed by King Harshwardhan of Thaneshwar when he visited Ujjain. A visit to this temple is a must during your Madhya Pradesh tour.

  • गढ़कालिका मंदिर, मध्य प्रदेश के उज्जैन शहर में स्थित है। कालजयी कवि कालिदास गढ़ कालिका देवी के उपासक थे। कालिदास के संबंध में मान्यता है कि जब से वे इस मंदिर में पूजा-अर्चना करने लगे तभी से उनके प्रतिभाशाली व्यक्तित्व का निर्माण होने लगा। कालिदास रचित 'श्यामला दंडक' महाकाली स्तोत्र एक सुंदर रचना है। ऐसा कहा जाता है कि महाकवि के मुख से सबसे पहले यही स्तोत्र प्रकट हुआ था। यहाँ प्रत्येक वर्ष कालिदास समारोह के आयोजन के पूर्व माँ कालिका की आराधना की जाती है। गढ़ कालिका के मंदिर में माँ कालिका के दर्शन के लिए रोज हजारों भक्तों की भीड़ जुटती है। तांत्रिकों की देवी कालिका के इस चमत्कारिक मंदिर की प्राचीनता के विषय में कोई नहीं जानता, फिर भी माना जाता है कि इसकी स्थापना महाभारतकाल में हुई थी, लेकिन मूर्ति सतयुग के काल की है। बाद में इस प्राचीन मंदिर का जीर्णोद्धार सम्राट हर्षवर्धन द्वारा किए जाने का उल्लेख मिलता है। स्टेटकाल में ग्वालियर के महाराजा ने इसका पुनर्निर्माण कराया।
