Maha Shivratri 2019: According to Hindu mythology, Mahashivratri or the 'Great night of Lord Shiva' is celebrated to mark the wedding of Lord Shiva to Goddess Parvati. This year it will be celebrated on March 4.

Maha Shivratri celebrations are associated with several stories about Lord Shiva, who is also known as ‘The Destroyer’ within the Hindu trinity. Generally, Maha Shivratri is celebrated as the anniversary of Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati, but there are many other stories in various texts and scriptures describing why Maha Shivratri is celebrated


According to Puranas, Shivratri is celebrated as the day Shiva saved the world from the pot of poison that emerged during the great mythical churning of the ocean called Samudra Manthan.



On this day, followers of Lord Shiva observe the special Maha Shivratri vrat (fast). Devotees throng Shiva temples across the country, perform late evening puja, offer milk to the Shivaling and also pray for moksha. Many spend the night chanting verses and hymns in praise of Lord Shiva. Women also pray to be blessed with a good husband and a happy married life. Some temples even organise fairs and other cultural programmes on this day.

Shivratri has a great significance for the Kumbh Mela also. The festival marks the end of the mega holy event which is celebrated after every 12 years. This year, the ongoing Ardh Kumbh Mela will end on March 4 when devotees will take the last holy dip on the auspicious day
