Many temples were packed with people. Special Poojas and Abhishekhs began shortly after midnight at various temples. Devotees offered special prayers to the Lord, as well as Jalabhishekh.
The Siddharoodha Swamy Math saw a large influx of devotees, with thousands gathering to offer prayers as the clock struck 12 a.m. The annual fair of Sri Siddharoodha Swamiji will be conducted tomorrow, and devotees from other states and nearby districts have come to seek the blessings of Sri Siddharoodha Swamiji and Gurunathroodha Swamiji.
On the occasion of Mahashivaratri and the yearly fair, the math was decorated with lights and flowers. Devotees flocked to the Manjunatheshwar temple, which is located near Indipump.
