It was a very devine experience, a peace mind

It is place worth visiting at least once in a lifetime. I will definitely visit it once more . Mahala darshan was the main attraction and the reason behind my visit. Got a total peace of mind after the darshan.

Bhasmarati at Mahakaleshwar Temple was thrilling.

It was a divine experience at Ujjain and Omkareshwar. Besides the Jyotirlingas, I enjoyed visiting Sandipani Ashram, Kala Bhairav temple, Mangalnath Temple, Ramghat, Harsiddhi Temple, Ganesh Temple.

Darshan of a Magical (God Shiva)

If you are visiting as a dharshanarthi then you should planned your travel before reaching Magical temple. Such that If you want to take Bhasma Aarti one should take ticket before one day. Secondly, If you want to take darshan more faster than, there a charge of Rs. 250. Near by Airport is in Indore which is not very far away, you can reach their within one and a half year.

Mr

Good nice place for pilgrimage and the darshan gives good peace of mind here. This place has value as per Hindu mythology and hence its a important place to visit. Overall vey nice to visit. If any senior is there than its better to take a very pass and do the Darshana. The general route will take more than 2 hrs. By vip made the darshan can be made in less than a hour.

Religious place

Mahakaleshwara Temple is main attraction of Ujjain. But it is very crowded place. Administration is OK. People having jack of VIPs may darshan easily, otherwise it is a tough task. VIPs are taken care and can enter near the idol. Paid darshan has all locker etc facility.
