as per the credits is based on the works of a writer named devdutt patnaik-a leading writer on Indian Mythology
he has written loads of books based on dont know which one they are refering to...

mythology is something that comes with our culture,1000s of writers have written books based or inspired by these...but he is the one they have credited!

immortals of meluha is quite very different...  IOM is loosely inspired by our mythology, but in the book, shiva is not divine or anything. he is just pictured as a nomadic hero.

The show is definitely inspired from the hindu mythology...

Immortals of Melhua by Amish is itself an alternative take on Shiva's myths from Puranas...This show is, in all probability, based on Shiva/Skanda/Linga Purans and associated literature..
However I would have loved it if it had been based on Immortals of Melhua/Shiva Triology..At least we would have got something different..Or else you get to see the same stories in all Mythological shows, just with different actors..

even I thought so but except for the names nothing is similar like sati should have been a vikarma which is not shown here and many other things and their Daksh didnt hate Shiva but in this serial he does.

i watched the first 5mins of dis show hoping it was based on the book Immortals of meluha but its not :( so i ditched the show.

plus the character playing shivji doesnt do anything for me. there was a prog on metro or some other channel, the shivji in that show was absolutely CUTE. LOL

@Dasksha hating shiva is something which was from the beginning,so much that it costed him his daughter!

Some part in him denied the phase death.

Brahma(his father) was the creator.

Vishnu(his fav deity) was the preserver who is Alankar priya which means he loved to be adorned n embellished.
Represents growth,sustenance n prosperity(for obvious reason as Goddess Laskhmi is his consort) 

 But Shiva (the one who symbolized death or the end ) ,i suppose he didn't like the concept that what is born has to be perished one day.

A person becomes humbled and even detached  at the end of his life 
Cause how rich or poor or great a man be in his entire life but at the end he takes no one n nothing with him.
