This weekend will be a little different from all your other weekends, with the big night of Mahashivaratri falling on Friday, February 21st 2020. Widely celebrated by practising Hindus and Shaivites around the globe, this festival stands out from all the others. This two-day celebration is meant to dive deeper and introspect on one’s life and their purpose, to meditate and focus. As you thank lord Shiva for all that he has taught, take a tour around temples built for the diety and soak in the divine energy of the protector of this universe.
The Mallikarjuna Jyotirlinga, situated in the Kurnool district, deserves a foremost mention. Being most important of the 18 Maha Shakti Peethas, this is where Lord Shiva is believed to have lived with Goddess Parvati.
