Maha Shivaratree
Thursday 11 March 2021

This festival is also called 'the great night of Shiva' and is celebrated by a pilgrimage to "Grand Bassin," a natural lake on the central plateau. Generally held in February, the pilgrims dressed in white proceed to Grand Bassin carrying a bamboo contraption on their shoulders as a sign of sacrifice.
