Perhaps Shri Mukherjee is the first president of India who celebrated Maha Shivratri in Rashtrapati Bhawan (President’s House), as per record.

India’s first president Babu Rajendra Prasad inaugurated and took part in the ‘prana pratistha’ (making alive the deity) in the renovated Somnath Temple in Gujarat on 11 May, 1951. But, it is not known whether he worshiped in the Shiva Temple in Rashtrapati Bhawan on any Maha Shivratri.
