Ujjain: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will dedicate the first phase of Shri Mahakal Lok (Corridor) to the nation in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh. The Mahakal Lok Corridor, more than 900 meters long, is spread around the old Rudra Sagar Lake.

One of the 12 Jyotirlingas of the country is established in the Mahakaleshwar temple and a large number of devotees from all over the country and abroad come here. Prime Minister Modi will inaugurate the first phase of the Rs 856 crore Mahakaleshwar Temple Corridor Development Project. In the first phase, Mahakal Lok has been developed for Rs 316 crore.
