Shivaratri in Negheriting

Golaghat wears a festive look as Shivrati celebration is going on in full swing.

Devotees in large numbers are thronging the Shiva temples to offer pujas to the Lord from early in the morning.

Historic Negheriting temple of the Lord Shiva is teeming with thousands of devotees who have been waiting in long queues patiently to offer pujas to the Lord Shiva.

“I arrived here at 9 in the morning. But it will need four hours more for me to offer puja to the Lord Shiva,” said Rupkanta Bora, a devotee who came from Ghiladhari area to Assam Times.

Speaking to Assam Times organizers said,” we are trying our level best to ensure smooth celebration of the annual festival.”

The puja which began on Monday will end only on Wednesday.
