Story of Pattaneshwar Mahadev form of Shiva in Ujjain
One day Goddess Parvati wanted to know why Shiva was interested in residing at Mahkaal Vana (present day Ujjain); when he could comfortably reside in Kailash or Heaven.

When this conversation was taking place, sage Narada reached there.

Shiva then asked Sage Narada that in the three worlds where did he find supreme happiness and peace.

Sage Narada told that he found it at Mahakaal Vana especially at a spot known as Pattan. Here everyone is chanting the name of Shiva. All gods and goddesses are present here.
