During her visit to the temple on Wednesday, Sara Ali Khan also paid obeisance to Lord Shiva and was also seen offering prayers at 'Garbhagriha'. Sanjay Guru, a priest of Mahakaleshwar temple, said that after paying obeisance at the 'Garbhagriha', Sara also participated in prayers to 'Nandi Baba'. She arrived in Ujjain via Indore early this morning. The actress, who often visits the temple, also perfomed pooja at 'Tirthakot Kund'.
