Festival starts at sunset and continues all night

The “Night of Shiva” is celebrated on the day before the new moon in late February or early March, when the moon is furthest from Earth, a time to worship God the Absolute. An all-night puja begins at sunset with chanting in praise of Lord Shiva. There are five periods of worship, each followed by prasad.
