Dedicated to Lord Shiva, Mangalnath Temple is a greatly respected holy place situated in Ujjain. As per the inscriptions in Matsya Purana, Mangalnath is said to be the birthplace of Mars. The Puranas refer to Mangaldev as the child of Lord Shiv and Prithvi (Bhumi, earth), thereby acquiring the name, Bhaum.

His presence in the third, sixth, tenth and eleventh house from lagna in an individual’s birth chart is considered to give favourable results, while the presence in the first, fourth, fifth, seventh, eighth, ninth and twelfth house is said to yield unfavourable results.
His influence generates virtues of courage, heroism, anger, warring tendency, joyousness, knowledge of sense, and dominance in an individual. Such people are soldiers, doctors, sportsmen, mechanics etc. The colour associated with Mangal is red, metal-copper, gem-red coral and element-fire. A fast on Tuesdays, Hanuman worship etc are means to pacify him.
