Maha Shivratri is conducted in honour of the Hindu deity Lord Shiva. The occasion is believed to symbolise the union of Shiva and Parvati in marriage and the night when Shiva performed the ‘Tandava’, the dance of primordial creation, preservation and destruction.
Shiva devotees fast on this day and stay up at night. They visit Shiva temples and give offerings to the deity. On this occasion, we share five Hindi songs dedicated to Lord Shiva.
