To all you Shiv Bhakts out there, here’s a festival curated specially for you.
Maha Shivratri is an annual ode to the so-called Destroyer in Indian mythology, Lord Shiva. Ardent worshippers celebrate the festival in very special ways, both in India and in different countries around the world. At just 500 rupees, Hyderabad Trails has a very lucrative offer to give you the full-blown Maha Shivratri experience.
Whether you’re a follower, a traveller, or just willing to try something new, the Keesargutta Night Trail is for you. The one-night festival will include specially curated music suited to the occasion, an acoustic performance, a night trail among the hills of Keesara, and a trip to an archaeological site with structures from the Chalukyan period.
You will get to hear stories of the mythical Indian God and some surreal experiences as you stay awake till the wee hours. An excerpt from the official event page says “Shivratri is also supposed to be the darkest night of the year. On this night, it is believed that the planetary positions create a natural upsurge of energy in the human body system. Millions of Hindus every year forego sleep on Shivratri, as it is considered to be enormously beneficial for one’s physical and spiritual well-being to stay awake and aware throughout the night.”
