Maha Shiv Ratri

 

Maha Shivratri is the Marriage day of Lord Shiva. Maha Shivratri is celebrated on 14th dark fortnight in the month of Phaguna (February-March). This festival is specially celebrated in Varanasi, because Varanasi is a city of Lord Shiva. Maha Shivratri is celebrated in every temple of Lord Shiva in Varanasi, but the celebration in Kashi Vishvanath Temple, New Kashi Vishvanath temple, Markande Mahadev Temple Kaithi, are the most popular. Devotees offer bhang, dhatura, milk and flower to Lord Shiva.
