God mahakaleshwar drinks liquor in Prasad.if travelling in summer make sure you keep water bottle with you.for elderly person it is better to hire a cab for the whole day as there are many other places to visit.

The real essence of this temple is witnessing the Bhasma Arati. Do not miss it at any cost. MP Tourism has made everything online and has made it such a easy and simple process. Har Har Har Har Mahadev. Sheer Ecstatic Experience
