Ujjain (MP), Oct 8 (PTI) An anthem dedicated to Lord Shiva, the resident deity of the ancient Mahakaleshwar Temple in Ujjain, will be sung by Kailash Kher here on the day the mega corridor will be inaugurated by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, officials said on Saturday. The anthem ‘Jai Shri Mahakal’ has been composed to mark the creation of 'Mahakal Lok', as the corridor has been named.

The state's culture department and Mahkaleshwar Temple had earlier jointly released a poster of the anthem on Twitter.

Modi on October 11 will dedicate the first phase of the Rs 856-crore Mahakaleshwar Temple corridor development project here, around 200 km from the state capital Bhopal. "Mega arrangments are being made for the opening of the 'Mahakal Lok' that will be dedicated to the people by the PM. After reaching Ujjain, he will drive to the temple complex in his motorcade, and perform a 'puja' at the Mahakaleshwar Temple.
