Story of Anadikalpeshwar Mahadev form of Shiva in Ujjain

Brahma was proud about his creation. He believed he was the creator of all forms in the universe. One day a voice from the sky asked him to go to Mahakaal Vana and find out the beginning and end of a Shivling called Kalpeshwar. If he is able to find out the end and beginning, then he is the creator of all forms.

Brahma went to Mahakaal Vana and attempted to find the end and beginning of the Shivling but he failed in his mission.

The voice was heard again and it proclaimed that this Shivling is known as Anadikalpeshwar and it was present from time immemorial. All forms came after it. Even Brahma appeared much later.
