Maha Shivratri is known as the day when Lord Shiva married Goddess Parvati. This year, the festival falls on February 21.
The day is also marked as a symbolic celebration of overcoming 'darkness' in life and in the world. Another legend suggests that this was the night when Shiva performed the heavenly dance of creation, preservation and destruction.
On Friday, people from across the country will come together to offer prayers and profer milk and flowers to the Shivling.
