Maha Shivaratri

Maha Shivaratri is a significant Hindu festival celebrated in India and other parts of the world. It usually falls on the 13th night and 14th day of the lunar month of Phalguna (February or March). The festival is dedicated to Lord Shiva, one of the principal deities in Hinduism, and is observed with fasting, prayers, and night-long vigils. Devotees visit Shiva temples, perform ritual baths, offer special prayers, and engage in meditation to seek blessings, cleanse their sins, and attain spiritual enlightenment. It holds deep religious and cultural importance, and it is believed that observing Maha Shivaratri with devotion can lead to the fulfillment of wishes and liberation from the cycle of birth and death.
