Maha Shivaratri

Maha Shivaratri, a Hindu festival venerating the deity Shiva, is observed annually between February and March. This celebration occurs on the 14th day of the dark half of the lunar month of Phalguna or Magha.

For Shaivites, Maha Shivaratri stands out as the most pivotal sectarian festival of the year, representing the pinnacle of devotion to Shiva. This night holds the utmost sanctity, being the holiest occasion for devotees of the god Shiva. The festival spans an entire night, emphasizing the performance of Puja during the nocturnal hours and concluding with the breaking of the fast on the subsequent day after a ceremonial bath. Devotees express their reverence through offerings such as fruits, leaves, sweets, and more.
