The Mahakal Path has 108 pillars depicting the Anand Tandav Swaroop (dance form) of Lord Shiva. There are many religious sculptures along the Mahakal trail depicting the life of Lord Shiva.

The mural along the path is based on Shiva Purana stories such as the act of creation, the birth of Ganesha, the story of Sati and Daksha. The Plaza area, spread over 2.5 hectares, is surrounded by a lotus pond and contains a statue of Shiva and fountains.
