About the Art

Goddess Sati took birth as Parvati, the daughter of Himavan to marry Lord Shiva. She practiced severe penance to win Lord Shiva's heart. After years of Tapasya at the Gauri Kund, Parvati succeeded in convincing Lord Shiva to accept her as his wife. According to the legend, Shiva proposed to Parvati for marriage at a place known as Guptakashi and then tied the nuptial knot at Triyuginarayan. Lord Shiva invited all of his Ganas to the marriage ceremony. He also instructed sage Narada to invite all the deities, sages and celestial entities.
