Shivaratri is a Hindu festival celebrated annually in reverence of the god Shiva. It is the day Shiva was married to the goddess Parvati. Most of the Hindus on this festival come from India. Hindus from other parts of the world, including Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, and SAARC countries Bhutan and Sri Lanka also visit the temple. The scantily-clad, ash-smeared sadhus or babajis, most of them come from India, and can bee seen enjoying marijuana, are the major attraction of the festival.
