Shiva-Parvati are one of the most revered deities of the Hindu pantheon and the husband-wife duo evoke immense faith and devotion in the hearts of the people of the land.

This book traces the legend of Shiva-Parvati in the ancient texts of the Hindus and delves into the aspects of the worship of Shiva-Linga; the iconography of Shiva and of Parvati and their symbolic representation. The cult of the Mother Goddess symbolised by Parvati as Shakti, Kali and Durga; the legend of Shiva and Sati and the marriage of Shiva and Parvati are delineated in detail. The sons of Shiva--Mangal, Karttikeya, Hariharaputra, Jalandhara, Hanuman and Andhaka--all find a mention.
