In Hindu Mythology, Lord Shiva has been given the highest position among all gods.

He is also known as Neelkanth due to his blue throat.

Lord Shiva is known to have swallowed poison and it is still there in his throat which is why the colour of his throat is blue.

Another reason for Lord Shiva’s greatness is his hold of the holy river Ganges.

The river’s flow had been so furious that before sending it on Earth, it needed to be controlled else it could sweep off the planet.

Lord Shiva turned out to be a boon and decided to take the flow of the river into his hair.

Lord Shiva also appears in people’s dreams in different ways.
