AGARTALA, Aug 12 (TIWN): The auspicious month of Sawan or Shravan is the most awaited for Lord Shiva and Mata Parvati devotees. The month-long festival is celebrated with full fervour and gusto across the State.

Devotees throng Shiva-Parvati temples in huge numbers from early morning and offer water (jal) or Ganga Jal to the god (Shivalinga).

The pious month falls during July-August, as per Gregorian calendar and is considered to be extremely auspicious where devotees pray to Lord Shiva and his consort Mata Parvati.

The first Monday of Sawan was on July 17, 2019, and today happens to be the last Monday of Shravan. It holds immense significance for the devotees, who observe fast (vrat) during this period and perform puja. Some even visit Lord Shiva temples in the morning after taking bath and bow down to the almighty.

During the month of Shravan or Sawan, devotees observe fasts on Mondays and visit Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati temples. Special pujas are also conducted in some temples during Shravan month. Gangajal Abhishekam is performed by various bhakts during this time.
