Chhath is an ancient festival dedicated to the Sun God. It is celebrated on the sixth day after Diwali. Chhath is also considered one of the most difficult festivals.

People celebrate this festival to offer thanks to the Lord Surya for blessing the life on the earth as ever. People worship the God Sun very enthusiastically and pray for the well-being, success and progress of their family members, friends and elders. According to the Hinduism, Sun worship is related to the cure of a range of diseases such as leprosy etc.
