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.

Maa Gadkalika Mandir, Ujjain Reviews
Maa Gadh Kaali, one of the Astadasa Shakti peeta. I was present for Madhyana Aarti, it taken me into trans.... Everyone must visit the temple atleast once in a lifetime and participate in Aarti.
Gadh kalika temple is a Shaktipith of Maa Kali worshiped by famous poet Kalidas, very peaceful temple.
This temple is dedicated to goddess Kalika. Classical poet Kalidas Garh was a worshiper of Goddess Kalika Devi. Kalidas has a belief that since he started worshiping in this temple, his talented personality began to build. Kalidas 'Shyamala Dandak' is a beautiful composition of the Mahakali Stotra. It is said that the same psalm had appeared first from the mouth of Mahakavi. Mother Kalika is worshiped every year before organizing the Kalidas festival. However, the temple of the fortress Kalika is not included in Shaktipeeth, but due to the mother Harshidhi Shaktipeeth in the Ujjain area, the importance of this area is increased. It is mentioned in the Puranas that on the Bhairav mountain near the banks of the Shipra river in Ujjain, the mother Bhagwati Sati had fallen. This place located very close to Bhirthari Cave, so you can easily reach here from your vehicle or by auto. Entry is free. Visit duration 15-30 mins. Washrooms Available in front of Main gate.

An historic temple of kalika mata.
Great and oldest temple of the city. The timing for the Shri Kal Bhairav Temple is usually from 6.00 am to 9.00 pm but as in the case of temple you can also visit the temple after the time mentioned. Please try to go to the temple between the mentioned time.
