According to Hindu scriptures, worshiping Lord Shiva in the month of Sawan fulfills all wishes. Visiting the 12 Jyotirlings during the holy month of Sawan is also of particular importance. All of these 12 Jyotirlings have their own distinct characteristic. But the only one Jyotirling among 12, which faces the south direction, is Mahakaleshwar.
This Jyotirling is situated in the religious capital of Madhya Pradesh in Ujjain. Local residents of this city consider Mahakal to be their King. It is their belief that every Sawan, their King Mahakal sits on his vehicle and takes the round of the entire city asking for people’s well being.
Apart from this, there are many other ancient stories famous about Mahakaleshwar. The amazing dressing and makeup of Mahakal attracts every human here.
