Maha Shivratri is one of the prime festivals of Hinduism. It is celebrated to honour the ‘DEVON KE DEV’ Mahadev Lord Shiva. This night symbolizes the night when Lord Shiva performs the heavenly dance. Shivratri arrives every lunar-solar month of the Hindu calendar on the 13th/14th day but MAHASHIVRATRI comes once every year in late winter that is Phalguna before the arrival of Summer. The Maha Shivratri means the “The Great Night Of Lord Shiva”. Worshippers of Shiva perform Jagran the whole night to commemorate the heroic acts of Lord Shiva.
According to Vedic astrologers, the festival provides us all an opportunity to mark the remembrance of “overcoming darkness and ignorance” in life. You can even perform shradh of your elders on this particular night. And, for the same, you can hire real astrologers to perform Puja to please your deceased elders. Lord Shiva drank poison to save the entire universe and to commemorate the noble act of that particular day, Maha Shivratri is celebrated.

In wake of this, you can visit the temple to offer prayers to Lord Shiva and offer poisonous flowers such as Datura.
