First time I hv seen temple where people put liquer to kal bhairav bhagwan. This I do not like but visited temple without any offering. I never drink shrab so how i can offer it to god. Condition of this mandir is also not good,mp govt should do something for this famous temple.

This place is one of the most visited place by the pilgrims visiting Ujjain. You may find it astonishing and unbelievable but there is a temple of Shri Kaal Bhairav in Ujjain city in Madhya Pradesh State of India where liqueur is offered as ‘chadhava’ (offerings).

A must place to visit in Ujjain, as per the legend the idol in this temple drinks liquor and scientist have not been able to find that where this liquor goes. you can also bring your own bottle but it should be sealed pack.

Very nice place to be. Mainly alcohol is offered to "Kal Bhairav" and same is available outside temple or one can carry also. Important thing to remember! NEVER BREAK THE SEAL OF THE BOTTLE as priest at temple refuse to offer open bottle to "Kal Bhargav".
