Festivals in Singapore: Maha Sivarathri

Singapore is that kind of  place where I have a feeling that every day there is an occasion to celebrate. This is of course the result of mixed society who doesn’t want to forget about traditions of their ancestors.

On Tuesday I had a chance to observe Maha Sivarathri, a festival dedicated to Lord Shiva (as the Hindu temple located in my area, Geylang, where I live in Singapore, was built for god Shiva so Maha  Sivarathri is one of the most important festivals celebrated here).

All evening and night were full of rituals, the temple was full of devotees, but I was more interested in a cultural program that accompanied the celebrations.
