Fourth Monday of 'sawan' month celebrates at Ujjain's Mahakaleshwar temple

On the occasion of the fourth Monday of the 'sawan' month, the Bhasma Aarti was performed at Ujjain's Mahakaleshwar temple in the morning on July 27.

The priests wore masks and ensured social distancing as a preventive measure against COVID-19.

Shravan, the fifth month in the Hindu calendar, is considered to be the most auspicious month of the year.

It is dedicated to Lord Shiva who, according to Hindu religious beliefs, is the creator, preserver, and destroyer of this universe.

While Lord Shiva is worshipped on Mondays throughout the year, Mondays during this particular month are considered highly significant and auspicious.

The festival is celebrated predominantly in the North Indian states.
