Named after Lord Shiva, the raga is placed on a high pedestal in the realms of Indian classical music. It is one of the most lovely raag. It is sung from late evening to midnight and is said to create a mood of peacefulness. Its playful note combinations are beautifully suited also for creating moods of joy and elation. It is characterised by a lot of complex turns, which are brilliantly melodious but difficult to express in words. The meend from D to M via P is the heart of the raga.
