IHM Chefs has prepared some authentic cultural food on this festival of Shivaratri .
As every year, Hindu devotees from all over the country and neighboring India have gathered to the sacred Pashupatinath Temple for the annual Maha Shivaratri festival. Observed on a new moon day on the 11th month of the Nepali lunar calendar, the festival marks the convergence of Shiva and Shakti and is the celebration of the god of destruction.
Devotees primarily celebrate Shivaratri at night, as its name suggests, by maintaining an all-night vigil, offering prayers and enjoying with music and dances, along with bonfire. Pilgrims wait in queues long before daybreak to pay homage to Lord Shiva.
