The ceremony included the worship of Mahakal with Panchamrit, Rudraksh garlands, Bilva leaves, ‘Makhana garlands,’ saffron, sandalwood, and fragrant perfumes.
During the worship of Mahakaleshwar, Umesh Nath Maharaj of Valmiki Dham, Higher Education Minister Mohan Yadav, and MLA Paras Jain were also present with him. Priests Rupam Guru and Navneet Guru conducted the puja.
Following this sacred ceremony, CM Yogi proceeded to the Bhartrihari Cave. As per tradition, he was welcomed with garlands of Rudraksha and pearls amidst chanting of mantras. Additionally, he was presented with a brass trident.
Inside the cave, he visited the sacred meditation sites of Guru Gorakhnath, King Bhartrihari, and Gopichand Maharaj. Furthermore, he displayed his affection for the cows residing in the Bhartrihari cave cowshed by offering them jaggery and gram.
It is noteworthy that King Bhartrihari had a deep connection with Guru Gorakhnath.

After this, CM Yogi reached Indore, where he inaugurated the 40-foot-high flag pole in Shrinath temple.
