Mahashivaratri, also known as 'the night of Shiva' is a religious festival celebrated by Hindus across the world with devotion in honor of Lord Shiva.

The devotees focuses on fasting and prayers on an all-night vigil at temples to overcome darkness and ignorance within themselves, as well as embrace forgiveness, honesty and kindness.
