Chhath Puja is a four-day-long Hindu festival dedicated to the worship of the Sun God, Surya, and his consort Usha, during the months of October or November. This year, it will be observed on Sunday, November 19, 2023. The festival is mainly celebrated in the northern states of India, particularly in Bihar, Jharkhand, and eastern Uttar Pradesh. During this festival, devotees observe a strict fast and offer prayers to the Sun God at the banks of rivers or ponds. The festival involves many rituals and traditions, such as taking a dip in the holy river, fasting, and making offerings to the Sun God. The last day of the festival, known as Chhath Parva, is celebrated with great enthusiasm and marks the end of the festival.
