  • Mahakaleshwar Jyotirlinga: One of the twelve Jyotirlingas of Shiva located in Avanti or Ujjain (Malwa Plateau).

    - Worship of Lord Shiva by devotee Veda Priya: According to Shiva Purana, Lord Shiva protected Veda Priya from demon Dushana in this place. Demon Dushana after getting a boon started tormenting the people. Veda Priya was a very noble brahmin living in the city of Avanti. When demon Dushana started tormenting the brahmanas in Avanti, Veda Priya and other brahmanas took refuge of Lord Shiva and worshipped a Parthiva Linga. Lord Shiva manifested in the terrible form of Mahakala and destroyed demon Dushana with a humkara. At the request of the brahmanas, Lord Shiva stayed in Avanti in the form of Mahakaleshwar.
