Description of Lord Shiva 

Lord Shiva, one of the principal deities in Hinduism, is worshipped as the Supreme Being who represents destruction, transformation, and regeneration. He is often depicted with a third eye on his forehead, symbolizing wisdom and insight, and a crescent moon adorning his matted hair. The Ganges river flows from his hair, signifying purification. Shiva is also known as “Mahadeva” (the Great God) and is associated with profound asceticism, residing in Mount Kailash. His attributes include the trident (Trishula), the drum (Damaru), and the serpent (Vasuki) around his neck. Devotees worship Shiva for his ability to grant liberation (moksha), remove obstacles, and bestow blessings of health and longevity.
