The northern hemisphere on this night, is positioned in a way causing an influx of natural energy upsurging from every being. It definitely is the day when nature accentuates one’s own spiritual peak.

Delhipedia curates a list of three Shiva temples one must visit on the holy day of Mahashivratri.

1.Gauri Shankar Temple


An ancient temple built by a soldier who had undertaken a vow to erect this holy temple if he recovered from the fatal injury he had suffered from during the war, and he did.  The Shiva Linga is 800 years old, accompanied by the other idols of his consort Parvati and son Ganesha and Kartik. The major attractions are the stunning silver paintings hanging on the walls depicting scenes from the life of Lord Shiva. During the celebration of Mahashivratri, the entire temple is garland with decorations, a completely awestricken sight.

2.Mangal Mahadeva Birla Kanan


One of the most well maintained temples residing in Delhi, the Mangal Mahadeva Birla Kanan is incredible and has one of the most beautiful statues of Shiva, the identifier of this temple. He stands with his wife and sons, and has the Vahana of lord Ganesha as well which is the effigy of a mouse. Surrounding the temple the premises are clean and neat with just a single stall selling incense. There’s a second garden on the left of the temple where Ram and Sita in silver and bronze respectively stand opposite of Radha and Krishna.

3.Shri Shiv Mandir


The majestic Shiv temple located near Dilli Gate is a very popular place for devotees of Shiva offering prayers. The statue is beautiful and blue, Shiva’s vibration is felt all through the temple in abundance as he rests on the centre of the roof. The energy of this temple must be powerful and maybe thats the reason why large number of believers visi, pray, and hope for their wishes to be fulfilled. Sacred trees of Neem and Peepul surround the temple over a small stretch of green. As you walk inside the temple, the idol of Kalka Mata marks the entrance and inside the deity of Bhairav is often offered Madera, a part of Hindu rituals.
