Liquor Offering at Kal Bhairav Temple in Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh – Alcohol Shops on the Premises of Kal Bhairav Temple in Ujjain

One of the important offering to Kal Bhairav form of Shiva is liquor. Devotees offer alcohol to the presiding deity at the famous Kal Bhairav Temple in Ujjain in Madhya Pradesh. To avoid illicit trade and spurious liquor, the government has now opened two alcohol shops on the premises of the temple.

The liquor that is offered in the temple is taken inside the sanctum sanctorum and a small amount is poured in a plate and the rest is returned to the devotees as Prasad.

Assistant Commissioner (Ujjain) Raghvendra Upadhyay said the proposal to legalise the sale had come from the sub-divisional magistrate, citing law and order. The process to invite tenders would begin in February and those who win bids for shops located in Chhatri Chowk and K D Gate (both in Ujjain town) would open the special counters from April 1.
