Things We Can Offer To Shivlinga


A Shivlinga is a representation of Lord Shiva. One of the most significant and surprising things of nature is the formation of a Shivlinga of ice at Amarnath. It is said that a Shivlinga is so pure that worshipping it can liberate your soul from all forms of negativities.

Lord Shiva is known as Mahadev because his worship is considered to be highly fruitful. He is often worshipped through this Shivlinga. We generally offer milk and water along with jaggery or sugar to a Shivlinga. However, there are other things as well that we can offer him. Take a look at these things we can offer to a Shivlinga.
