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. He was a warrior par excellence and the ruler of Anga Desh, i.e. Munger District of present day Bihar. As per the Puranas, Draupadi and the Pandavas of Hastinapur celebrated the Chhath Puja with prayers to Surya Dev to regain their lost Kingdom.
Surya Puja on Chhath Puja has mentions in the Ramayana as well. It is believed that Lord Rama and Maa Sita observed a fast on Chhath and worshipped Surya Dev in the Kartik Maas during Shukla Paksha. This was done after they returned to Ayodhya after their 14-year long exile.
