The Kal Bhairav temple is a Hindu temple located in the Ujjain city of Madhya Pradesh, India. It is committed to Kal Bhairav, the gatekeeper god of the city. Situated on the banks of the Shipra River, it is a standout amongst the most dynamic sanctuaries in the city, visited by many aficionados day by day. Alcohol is one of the contributions made to the sanctuary divinity. The present-day sanctuary structure was worked over the remaining parts of a more established sanctuary. The first sanctuary is accepted to have been worked by a dark ruler named Bhadrasen.
It has been referenced in the Avanti Khanda of the Skanda Purana. Pictures of Shiva, Parvati, Vishnu and Ganesha having a place with the Paramara time frame have been recouped from the place. The sanctuary dividers were once enhanced with Malwa canvases. In any case, just hints of these compositions are obvious at this point. The present-day sanctuary structure demonstrates Maratha impact. As indicated by the nearby custom, after the Maratha overcome in the Third Battle of Panipat 1761 CE, the Maratha general Mahadaji Shinde offered his pagri turban to the divinity, appealing to God for triumph in his crusade to reestablish the Maratha rule in North India. After effectively reviving Maratha control, he did rebuilding of the sanctuary.
