Devotees in Nepal flock to Shiva temples to offer prayers on auspicious Monday

Kathmandu (Nepal), Jul 22 (ANI): Hindu devotees flocked Shiva temples in Nepal marking the auspicious first Monday of the month of Shravan, the fourth month of Bikram Sambat, the Nepali Calendar. The fourth month of the lunar calendar is devoted to Lord Shiva, saviour and destructor of the universe, and unmarried women observe fast and offer prayers wishing for a good husband, while married women fast for the longevity of their husbands and wellbeing of their family members.

Every Monday of Shravan, the devotees worship Lord Shiva donned in fresh clothes and take sacred meals that exclude garlic, onion, and even grains. As per the religious belief, one's wishes are fulfilled and Lord Shiva showers fortunes on the devotees who visit the shrines dedicated to him.
