  • भगवान शिव के 12 शिवलिंगो में महाकालेश्वर का एक विशेष स्थान है ! भगवान महाकाल को मृत्यु का देवता माना गया है और उज्जैन के भगवान महाकालेश्वर की भस्मारती तो विश्व प्रसिद्ध है ! एकमात्र दक्षिणमुखी होने के कारण महाकालेश्वर महादेव की अत्यन्त पुण्यदायी महत्ता है। इसके दर्शन मात्र से ही मोक्ष की प्राप्ति हो जाती है, ऐसी मान्यता है।गर्भगृह तक पहुँचने के लिए एक सीढ़ीदार रास्ता है। इसके ठीक उपर एक दूसरा कक्ष है जिसमें ओंकारेश्वर शिवलिंग स्थापित है। यहाँ छोटे बड़े सब कुल 52 शिवलिंग है जिसमे वृद्ध महाकाल का मंदिर भी शामिल है. ओम्कारेश्वर मंदिर के समीप ही साक्षी गोपाल का मंदिर है कहा जाता है महाकाल के दर्शन करने के पश्चात् साक्षी गोपाल के दर्शन करना अनिवार्य है क्युकी साक्षी गोपाल ही साक्षी होते है आपके दर्शन के और वही महाकाल भगवान को आपके दर्शन की गवाही देते है !

  • A happy family picnic spot (perhaps, the one of the oldest) once upon a time. However, nowadays, has lost its significance because of many new ones that have come up. I love it anyway.A happy family picnic spot (perhaps, the one of the oldest) once upon a time. However, nowadays, has lost its significance because of many new ones that have come up.
