Mega menu is used to simplify user navigation by covering a maximum list of items in a menu dropdown. Using this we can avoid multiple levels of menu navigation.

In the previous tutorial, we have seen multi-level menu using CSS and jQuery. In this tutorial, we are going to see how to show jQuery mega menu.
