Story of Rameshwar Mahadev form of Shiva in Ujjain
Parashuram went around the world and annihilated thousands of kings who followed Adharma. Finally, when he took rest and he wanted to know how to wash away the sins he had committed of unknowingly killing innocent people during his campaign to get rid of Adharma.

Indra, the king of Devas, asked him to distribute the punya that he will receive after having darshan of Shiva to get rid of the sin.

Parashuram then went to Mahakaal Vana (modern day Ujjain) and performed intense austerities before a Shivling. Later he had the darshan of Shiva and he distributed all the punya that he got of having Shiv Darshan to sinners.

Parashuram was thus relived of all sins.

The Shivling to which Parashuram offered prayers is known as Rameshwar Mahadev.

A fair and festival is organized here on Ashwin Krishna Paksha Chaturdasi.
