This Jyotirlinga is located in Ujjain by the Mahakal forest on the right banks of the river Kshipra. The temple courtyard is dominated by the shikhara soaring into the sky. There are five levels, four above ground and one underground, lit with brass lamps. The last photo is of Shiva in his form as Mahakaleshvar, the "Ruler of Death," photo courtesy of Dr. James G. Lochtefeld, Assoc. Prof. of Religion, Carthage College, Kenosha, WI.
These photo offerings are from Sanjeev Nayyar's travels in India. Check out his website for More Photos of Travels in India.
