Mangalnath Temple, Ujjain District

Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Check your natal chart for the position of Mars and head to Mangalnath Temple, the only large temple in India dedicated to this planet. Legend has it that Mars was born out of a drop of Lord Shiva's sweat, which fell on earth during a battle. In the inner sanctum, you'll see a throned, life-size idol of the deity dressed in purple robes. Notice the swastikas on the walls of the temple drawn by devotees as part of a wish-granting ritual.
