The month of Sawan is dedicated to Mahadev and Parvati. Devotees throng the temples since morning to worship Shiva. People worship Lord Shiva to fulfill their wishes and also offer various things like Bel leaves etc. to him. But before this, you should know about the likes and dislikes of Mahadev.
1. Milk is very dear to Lord Shiva, so Lord Shiva is consecrated with milk. That's why you should also anoint them with milk.
