Sawan

Sawan month also known as Shravan month is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Sawan is the fifth month of Hindu calendar and the holiest month of the year. It commences during the month of July and continues till the month of August.

Sawan month relieves us from the scorching heat during summers in the form of pleasing rain drops. God showers their blessings in the form of rain.

It is the festive month of the year which is considered auspicious to worship Lord Shiva and his companion Goddess Parvati by observing fasts. Devotees keep Sawan Monday Fasts as Sawan Somwar or Shravan Somwar to worship Lord Shiva. Married women also observe Sawan Tuesdays as Mangala Gauri Vrat to worship Goddess Parvati. Many devotees start Solah Somwar or sixteen Mondays fasting from the very first Somwar of Sawan month.
