During the time of Pradosham, The Lord who holds the trident, makes Goddess Gowri, Who is the mother of all the three worlds, sit on a golden seat inlaid with precious gems, and prepares to dance himself, and all the devas sing his praise at this time.


Lord Shiva fulfills the wishes of those who pray to Him during Pradosha Kala and awards them with mukthi.  People offer milk, curd, and honey for anointing Shiva during Pradosham and also offer flowers and garlands for decorating the Lord.
