In addition to Deoghar’s Baba Baidhyanath temple, other prominent Shiva temples also witnessed a heavy footfall.

The whole month of Shravan is considered to be very auspicious as the ancient churning of ocean was performed in this month. Every day of the month holds a special significance.

On the occasion of Shravan Somwar, devotees undertake a special fast and perform prayers to please Lord Shiva.

Shravani Somvars are highly revered and special pujas are done on this day.
