Story of Indradhumneshwar Mahadev form of Shiva in Ujjain
Story of Indradhumneshwar Mahadev begins with King Indradhumneshwar wishing to attain moksha. He travelled to Himalayas and sought the help of Rishi Markandeya. The Rishi advised him to go to Mahakaal Vana (present day Ujjain) and offer prayers.
The king then made a Shivling and offered prayers at Mahakaal Vana.
Impressed with the piety and devotion of the king, Shiva appeared before him and granted him moksha. Shiva also told that the Shivling would be henceforth known by the name of the king.
