The festival of Chhath is dedicated to the Sun god, Surya – the main source of energy – and his consorts Usha and Pratyusha – the first and the last rays of the Sun. Devotees perform the rituals over a period of four days, which include bathing, fasting and offering arghya or praying offerings to the rising and setting Sun.
The festival is mainly celebrated in Bihar and parts of Uttar Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand and West Bengal. The Chhath Puja is also known as Chhetri, Chhath Parv, Chhath Maiya, Dala Chhath, Dala Puja and Surya Shashthi. It is celebrated on the sixth day of the Kartik month of the Hindu calendar. During Chhath, women perform the morning rituals by offering water to Sun and Chhathi Maiyya, believed to be the sister of Sun god.
