Not Gurudwara, Ujjain Mahakal temple becomes first to give food to 50 thousand people every day

Mahakaleshwar Temple, one of the major religious places of Ujjain, has touched a new milestone. This is a wonderful initiative that gives an example of providing free food to 50 thousand devotees every day. Apart from social organizations like Gurudwara, temples have also decided to contribute during this time, spreading the message of blessings and service to society.

The biggest gift is that a food hall has been prepared for free food for 50,000 devotees. It will be started after the inauguration of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan. In the future, there will be a plan to expand this dining hall to accommodate one lakh pilgrims. Under the expansion plan, the biggest gift the devotees are getting is the food sector. Mahakaleshwar Temple Committee has constructed the Anna Kshetra for Rs 25 crore. According to Ujjain Collector Kumar Purushottam, about 50,000 devotees will have free food daily in the food hall.

In the coming future, this dining hall will be expanded and made with a capacity of one lakh devotees. Construction work on the second phase of the Mahakaleshwar Temple Committee was completed for Rs 284 crore, according to Chairman and Collector Kumar Purushottam. After this, now the 3.2-hectare area of the temple has become even bigger. The Mahakaleshwar temple will give free food to 50 thousand devotees.

Collector Kumar Purushottam said that special care has been taken to ensure that human labour is also used to prepare food for such a large number of devotees every day. A fully automatic machine has been installed in the food area located on the temple premises, through which food for thousands of people will be prepared in some time.

Mahakal Temple is a major Hindu pilgrimage site in Ujjain which is dedicated to Lord Shiva. The name of this temple is associated with Mahakal of Ujjain, i.e. the terrible form of Lord Shiva. The Shivalinga here is called ‘Mahakal’, which people worship with special devotion. This place is known as Mahakal Temple and is visited by lakhs of devotees every year.
