Sun or Surya Dev is the giver of life. Humans, plants and animals, as well as other flora and fauna, cannot survive without the sun. Therefore, he is known as the God of Energy.

Chhath is a very important festival in India and is celebrated in the Kartik maas as per the Hindu Lunar Calendar. Devotees celebrate this festival to offer their thanks to Surya Dev for all the blessing of good life on earth.

History and Origin of Chhath Puja
Chhath Puja is highly significant in Hinduism. It is believed that Surya Putra Karna began the Chhath Puja rituals.

As per the Puranas, Draupadi and the Pandavas of Hastinapur celebrated the Chhath Puja with prayers to Surya Dev to regain their lost Kingdom.
