On the auspicious occasion of Maha Shivratri, thousands of devotees thronged various Shiva temples across Goa. Devotees began puja with worshipping the Shiva Linga, bathing it with water and milk and offering the prayers. Chanting mantras, singing religious songs are one of the ways of praying on the day, the most popular mantra being 'Om Namah Shivay.' It is said to be a favourable period for women seeking marital bliss and good husband, to worship goddess Gauri along with lord Shiva. Many devotees fast all day long and pray with devotion to have a prosperous life ahead.
