Sawan 2022: July 18 marks the first Monday of this year's Sawan month. Due to being the first Monday of Shravan month across the world, devotees are thronging the Shiva temples. Since morning, the cymbals in Shiva temples, chants of 'Har Har Mahadev' and 'Bam Bam Bhole' have been heard. In fact, due to Covid pandemic, Shiva Darshan and Shiva worship could not be done in Shiva temples for two years in the month of Shravan, which is why this time the devotees do not want to miss the opportunity.
