Karwa Chauth

Karwa Chauth

Karwa Chauth coincides with the Sankatahara Chaturthi. There will be a special Pooja at the temple at 7 PM.to Lord Ganesha. Please register to participate in Karwa Chauth Puja.

Karwa refers to an Earthen pot in which sweet or water is used for puja. Chauth means four, the fourth day after a full moon. Married women, mostly from the Northern and Western part of India observe this vrat for the well-being of their husbands and prosperity of their family. They gather in groups to perform the puja, and the elderly narrate or read stories of Karwa Chauth in the groups. Women observe fast from sunrise to sunset and perform puja which is mainly dedicated to Goddess Parvati. Goddess Parvati, being Akhand Saubhagyvati, is worshipped first during the puja followed by Lord Shiva, Lord Kartikeya, and Lord Ganesha. Goddess Gaura and Chauth Mata, both of whom represent Goddess Parvati herself, are also worshipped on Karwa Chauth. At sunset, when the moon is sighted, they offer Arghya to the Moon God and end their fast.
