: President Ram Nath Kovind would be the chief guest at the 25th Maha Shivratri celebrations at Isha Yoga Centre here on March 4.

The President would visit the 'Dhyana Linga', the 'Linga Bhairavi Devi' as well as the 'Suryakund', a energised water body that can enhance one's receptivity, before proceeding to Adiyogi where the Maha Shivratri event would unfold, it said.
The silver jubilee celebration is expected to be bigger and grander than ever with several well-known artistes performing through the night on Shivaratri.
Musical performances by Amit Trivedi, Hariharan, Karthik and other popular artistes, including drummers from Azerbaijan, classical dance performances, folk art and culture and meditation sessions would be part of the nightlong festivities planned, the release said.
