Kal Bhairav Temple, Ujjain

4.3
Must see · Religious Site · Tourist Spot
Witness unusual offerings to the city's guardian deity at Kal Bhairav Temple, one the most active places of worship in town. The 18th-century temple stands on the site of a much older place of worship, and bears stylistic evidence of the Maratha reign in North India. Look for the tower of lamps, or deepmalika, and the deity Kal Bhairav's silver-headed image in stone covered with vermillion. Liquor is the tantric offering here, as well as symbolic gifts of meat, fish, and other foods, which visitors can purchase before entry. Watch as a priest offers prayers before pouring the liquor into a statue's mouth--supposedly there is no cavity to hold the imbibed fluid. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Kal Bhairav Temple and many more Ujjain attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's Ujjain trip builder site.
