The name Rangaraj is Sanskrit in origin and its meaning is king of color, or lord of the arena.
Here he may be someone creating different colours.

guys I have a question
I heard somewhere that once Daksh performed a yagya and then... he insulted shiv in some way...Sati couldnot bear his insult and jumped into the fire
Well now the question is we are being shown the love story of sati and shiv so then will they show us  about sati's jumping into the fire and then later the story b/w shiv and parvatiErmm

Is this true that Shiva only had the snake around His neck after Sati's self-immolation (as mentioned by one of the other forum member in couple of threads - thought this thread would be the best place to discuss about & to get responses)? If so then why are showing it now? Is this due to lack of research?

One person questioned about Shiv Linga existing before Sati and Shivas marrigae..
for general information here is the answer!
The most popular form of worshipping Lord Shiva in Hinduism is in the Linga form. It is known as Shivling or Shivalinga. The Linga symbol is an attempt to give form to the formless, referred as Supreme Being or Brahman in Hindu religion. When a Linga is installed on a Yoni, it represents the union of Shiva and Shakti – the beginning of creation.
Puranas and Epics in Hinduism narrate in detail why Shiva is worshipped in the form of linga. It is said that the Supreme Being appeared before Lord Brahma and Vishnu in the form of a 'pillar of fire', which had no end and beginning. It is one among the many symbols of Brahman. There are numerous other incidents in the Puranas including the famous Deodar forest incident in which the wives of saints are attracted to Shiva and he castrates himself and leaves the Linga on earth as his symbol.

this is the information i found,and it doesnt state anything about Sati

 

The Symbolism of Snakes in Saivism

Lord Siva is depicted in many images like the one above as wearing a garland of snakes around his neck. There is a deep symbolism hidden behind this. 

Lord Siva is know as Pasupathinath, the lord of all creatures. Being a lord of the animals he has complete control on their behavior. Since a snake is one of the most feared and dangerous animals in the world, the garland of snakes around the neck firmly establishes this fact even the snakes fear Him and remain under his control. 

The snake stands for all the evil and demonical nature in the world. By wearing the snake around his neck, Lord Siva gives us the assurance that no evil can touch us or destroy us once we surrender to him, seek his protection and worship him with deep devotion. 

The snake also stands for the power of kundalini, which is described as a coiled serpent lying dormant in the muladhara chakra of all human beings and descends upwards when one starts ones spiritual journey and becomes increasingly divine oriented. The snake around the neck of Siva conveys the meaning that in him the kundalini not only has arisen fully but is also actively involved in the divine activity by keeping an eye on all the devotees who approach Siva with their individual problems.

The snake also stands for all passions and desires. By wearing the snakes around his neck, Lord Siva conveys the message to all his devotees that He has overcome all desires and is in full control of Prakriti, or maya and its various machinations.

Pictures and idols of Lord Shiva depict him wearing snakes (cobra) prominently around his neck. Snake is known as 'Nag' or Naga and they hold a special place in Hindu religion. Snakes are worshipped in Hinduism. The snakes found on the body of Lord Shiva are considered to be his ornaments. The snake around Shiva's neck symbolically represents the ego which ones mastered can be worn as an ornament. Coiled serpents also signify that Shiva is the master of time and energy.

Images of snakes are often depicted as coiled around the Linga (Shivling). A five-headed snake forms a canopy over the Lingam. Snakes serve Shiva as his sacred thread, necklace, bracelets, bowstring and are occasionally found on his clothes.

There are numerous symbolism attached to the snakes on Shiva. In some case, the snake around his neck symbolize the endless cycle of life and death. The other snakes found on him including in the form of girdle, armlets symbolize the eternal revolution of ages and the successive dissolution and regeneration.

There are numerous stories regarding Shiva's association with serpents in the Puranas. Shiva is also worshipped as Nagesh at the Nageshwar Templenear Dwarka in Gujarat, which is also one among the 12 Jyotrilingas.

Snakes are said to bear rubies or diamonds (mani) on their heads, and the jeweled heads of cobras serve as lover's lamps for Shiva and Parvati.

The most famous association of Lord Shiva with snake is during the churning of the ocean (Samdura Manthanam). Shiva drinks the poison halahala that came out of snake Vasuki, who was used as the rope in the churning. The blue throated Shiva or Nilakantha is the result of swallowing the snake poison.

According to another legend, at the time of their marriage, Goddess Parvati asked Shiva what ornaments he had brought for her. Shiva then gathered all the poisonous things in the world and made ornaments from them. Thus snakes became different ornaments. This episode is found in the Skanda Purana. Shiva making ornaments from serpents is also mentioned in the Padma Purana and the Matsya Purana.
