Story of Trivishtapeshwar Mahadev form of Shiva in Ujjain
Once, Sage Narada visited Swarga Loka. Indra and other Devas present there asked Sage Narada about the greatness of Mahkaal Vana.
Sage Narada told the Devas that Shiva resided here with his Ganas. The place is filled with Shivlings and people are unable to count the number of Shivling present here.
Indra and Devas decided to visit Mahkaal Vana.
When they reached the place, a voice from the sky asked them to construct a Shivling north of Kakotishwar Shivling.
The Devas then built a Shivling and name it as Trivishtapeshwar Mahadev.
