Kal Bhairav Temple, Ujjain
(3.9/5 based on 200+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Kal Bhairav Temple and other Ujjain attractions into our Ujjain tourist route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • It is a little far away from Ujjain. The miracle is to see the main deity (Kal Bhairav) accepting the many liquors that are offered by the devotees and drinking. The monkeys outside are well behaved. ...  more »
  • The temple is good to visit. However, the smell of liquor may be a turn off for some considering this is a holy place. 
  • You need to take an auto to reach kaal bhairav since it's 5-6 km away from Mahakaal temple. Less crowded. You can get darshan in 15 mins on odd days
