About Ujjain

The ancient city of central India, Ujjain is situated in the Malwa region of Madhya Pradesh, on the eastern bank of the Kshipra River. Ujjain is one of the most popular religious destinations in India.

The History of Ujjain states that initially the city was known as Ujjayini and as per epic Mahabharata Ujjayani was the capital of the Avanti Kingdom. The city is said to have been the residence of Ashoka (who subsequently became the emperor), at the time when he was the viceroy of the western provinces of the Maurya empire.According to the History of Ujjain, the city was a major center of mathematical and astronomical research in the 6th and 7th centuries. The picturesque of Ujjain was invaded by the forces of the Delhi Sultanate led by Iltutmish in 1235. Due to this invasion the city suffered widespread destruction and systematic desecration of temples. After this under the Mughal emperor, Akbar, the city became the capital of Malwa.

Kal Bhairava

    According to the Saivite culture, the veneration of the eight Bhairavas is an integral feature of the Hindu customs.

This shrine has been cited in the Avanti Khanda of Skanda Purana.
