Know the reason why we all offer Gangaajal to Lord Shiva in Shravan Month

According to Hindu beliefs, The custom of Kanwar was started in “Treta Yug”. Lord Rama was the first who carried Gangaajal from Sultanganj to Baba Dham Mandir. As per the story, When Ocean was churning (Samudra Manthan), 14 different types of rubies came out. All the 13 was divided between Sur and Dev Gan but last was Halahal (Poison). After All God and Evil request, Lord Shiva drank all poisons and stored in his throat. To reduce the effect of Poison, Lord Shiva put the crescent moon on his head.
