Mega celebrations lined up for Mahashivratri and here’s where you can watch them

Maha Shivratri is celebrated in the honour of Lord Shiva, with devotees observing day-long fasts. The term Maha Shivratri is derived from the three words – Maha, Shiva, Ratri. As the name suggests, this auspicious event is celebrated at the night, and not in the day. This year too, mega events have been planned for a grand celebration of this grand night.

This year, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will unveil a 112-ft tall face of Adiyogi — the Source of Yoga, designed and consecrated by Sadhguru, founder, Isha Foundation, on Mahashivratri on February 24 at the Isha Yoga Center, Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu.
