Mahakaal ki Sawaari – A treat to witness


Lord Shiva, also known as Mahakaleshwar Baba locally, leaves the temples in the month of Shravan-Bhado. Every Monday at the beginning of the month of Shravan, the deity begins the yatra with the final ride, also known as the “royal ride.” Baba makes an annual trip to the city as the “Mahakaal ki Sawari” and visits with the followers.July 10, July 17, August 21, August 28, September 4, and September 11 are the dates for Mahakal ki Sawari in 2023. According to the traditional calendars used in North India, the Shravan month in 2023 starts on July 4 and finishes on August 31.

Every Monday, special Shiva murti processions are organised in the area of the Ujjain Mahakal Temple. Numerous thousands of people show up to see this unusual ritual. Additionally, the Kanwar Yatra takes place at this time.Before gaining independence, the temple followed the Marathi Panchang. Amavasya to Amavasya is used to determine the Marathi Panchang. However, Purnimat Panchang, or Purnima to Purnima, is the contemporary Panchang practised in Madhya Pradesh. As a result, there will be a total of six Mondays at the temple.

According to accounts, a group of young males were seen spitting water on the Baba Mahakaal procession when it approached the Kharakuan Police Station location close to the iron tank while travelling along the Shipra River.In response, CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan and his wife performed ritualistic worship at the Mahakaal temple on the next Sawari date (Monday, July 24) and then continued the Sawari from the same location.
