Chhath Puja 2014

Chhath Puja (छठ पूजा) is one of the prime festival of north India and Nepal dedicated to God Surya and Chhathi Maiya. The rituals of this festival are rigorous and it goes on for four days. Chhath Pooja is performed near the water bodies like rivers or ponds and when it comes to my city Dehri On Sone, we celebrate on the bank of Sone river.

Chhath Puja is very close to nature and eco-friendly, as devotees use Ghee Lamp for prayer, 'Soop' & 'Daura' used during rituals are made of bamboo. Prashad for Chhath Puja includes all available seasonal fruits, dry fruits, sugarcane, coconut, ginger & turmeric plants and lot more.
