Maha Shivaratri is a well-known Hindu celebration held in February or March in honor of Lord Shiva, the Hindu deity of destruction and regeneration.

Maha Shivratri is celebrated to commemorate “overcoming darkness and ignorance in life and the world.” Unlike other celebrations, it is held at night and is a solemn event.

Devotees fast all day, gather in Hindu temples to pay tribute and continue their devotion with a night-long vigil.

The rites surrounding Shivratri are highly popular among Hindu women, particularly those who wish to become pregnant.
