Chatth Pooja

This is the great and most sacred festival of Bihar. This festival is celebrated twice a year. Once in Chaitra (according to the Hindu calendar) which falls in March and second time in Kartik which falls in November.

People maintain sanctity and purity from even a month ahead for this 4-days festival. People celebrate this festival in the honour of 'Surya Dev' and 'Chatti Maiyya'. People sing folk songs in the honour of the 'Surya Dev' and 'Chatti Maiyya' on the occasion of Chatth Pooja. The sweetness of the songs lets you feel the holiness of the festival.

For the welfare of their family and the society, women fast on this occasion. Regardless of the social status, to celebrate this festival only the faith counts.
Some of the Muslims also participate actively in the puja, although it is the festival of Hindus.
People celebrate this festival with great joy.
