My visit to this holy place was the best. This also being one of the 12 jyoyilingas. It was a very divine experience. Reached there early in the morning for offering milk on a Sunday, since after 7.30 am no one will be allowed to offer since the ling is decorated. So the entire decoration and the arti being performed right in front ( 3 meters away). Proper arrangements are available for queue and darshan. Also on the outside sufficient food stalls since it takes a long time.

One of the most well managed temple in India. Totally hasselfree and amazing to visit. Staff is very helpful and most importantly they are not greedy. One can book the morning aarti tru net free of cost and attending aarti is WOW experience. One cant expect anything more... The power of God can be felt while siiting in front of Shivling and attending aarti. Pls dont forget to wear dhoti for men & Saree for women while attending aarti.

I have been there in the peak season "shravan month"..very religious place for hindus..
Can't express the divine experience in words..but was really very mesmerizing..the temple was really very beautiful..temple trust has built a very good arrangement to sit or stand in front of shiva's statue..
I will definitely go there when will go to ujjain.must visit for every hindu.
There are no entry tickets at all.
