Maha Shivarthri 2013 - Mauritius
The hindu celebration Maha Shivaratri is preceded by up to a month long fasting period for true devotees, but very often this period is shorter, and for some, it consists only of a 24 hour fasting period during the Shivaratri.During the days of celebration, thousands of devotees make their way on foot to the sacred lake of Grand Bassin, also known as Ganga Talao in Mauritius – a crater lake tucked away in the mountainous south west of Mauritius. The devotees carry their kanwars – wooden frames decorated with flowers, and once at the lake, flowers and fruits are offered in honour of Lord Shiva.
