Shiva Purāna is one of the eighteen significant Purānas, a type of Sanskrit message in Hinduism, and part of the Shaivism writing corpus. It essentially bases on the Hindu god Shiva and goddess Parvati, yet references and adores all gods.
The Shiva Purāna attests that it once comprised of 100,000 stanzas set out in twelve Samhitas (books). It was composed by the Romaharshana, a follower of Vyasa having a place with Suta class. The enduring original copies exist in various forms and content, with one significant rendition with seven books (followed to South India), another with six books, while the third form followed to the middle age Bengal area of the Indian subcontinent without any books yet two enormous areas called Purva-khanda (past segment) and Uttara-khanda (later segment).
