Maa Avantika, Bhairav Parvat Shakti Peeth


Maa Avantika, Bhairav Parvat Shakti Peeth-



Bhairav Parvat is an important Shakthi Peeta. Here Devi Durga is worshipped as Maa Avantika and Lord Shiva is worshipped as Lambkarna. Sati’s upper lips fell here. The Bhairav Parvat Shakti Peeth in Madhya Pradesh is located on the Bhairav Hills on the banks of the River Shipra in the city of Ujjaini. Locals also call this temple Gadkalika. Ujjain is also known as ‘Sapta-puri’- one of the seven sacred cities. It is considered one of the holiest cities in the world due to the presence of several important temples in Ujjain. It is also famous for being the place where Lord Krishna, Balaram and Sudama received an education from the sage Rishi Sandipani. The temple architecture of the Bhairav Parvat Shakti Peeth is unique: different coloured stone have been used in constructing it. In fact, the roof and walls of the temple have beautiful stone inscriptions. The idol of Devi Avanti is always adorned with a red sari as the colour red is considered sacred by married women in India.
