Ramban/IBNS: Shab-e-Meraj and Mahashivratri festivals were celebrated across the Ramban district in Jammu and Kashmir by thousands of people who offered their prayers in Masjids and temples.

The Shab-e-Meraj (the night of Meraj) was observed with religious zeal and fervor across the district with people thronging Masjids for offering night-long prayers.

Devotees visited Masjids of Banihal, Batote, Ramban, Maitra, Ramsu, Chanderkote, Seri, Batote, Sangaldan Rajgarh, Gool  Sangaldan, Dharamkund, Khari, and Ukhral to offer night prayers.

All the arrangements for devotees were made by the respective Auqaf committees.

The Imams and religious scholars in their sermons highlighted the importance of the night and its blessings, while throwing light on the teachings and various aspects of the life of Prophet Muhammad (SAW).

The Mahashivratri was also celebrated with equal devotion as people maintained fast and worshipped lord Shiva with a ritual bath of Shivlings in temples.

An impressive Shoba Yatra was taken out from Shiv Temple Maitra with the cooperation of Raghunath Temple, Ramban.

The Shobha Yatra passed through areas like Govind Pura Maitra, Boli Bazaar, Main Bazaar Ramban, and finally culminated at Raghunath Mandir Ramban.

A large number of devotees including men, women, and children standing alongside routes welcomed the devotees participating in the Shobha Yatra.

The trade organisations of Ramban town had decorated markets with gates and buntings at some places to welcome the yatris, while a community kitchen was also organised by the Sanatan Dharm Sabha at Maitra and by the locals at Ramban.
