Festival of the month: Chhath Puja

Each year after Diwali, for four days, many celebrate the Chhath Festival by performing a series of rites which end in a gathering with water rituals, music and mingling.

Chhath Puja is one of the biggest festivals in Bihar, and parts of Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand and various Hindu communities in Nepal also celebrate it. Bhagalpur in Bihar draws thousands of devotees to the Barari Ghat by the River Ganga.
