Moving toward Chhath ghat

It is believed that the ritual of Chhath puja may even predate the ancient Vedas texts, as the Rigveda contains hymns worshiping the Sun god and describes similar rituals. The rituals also find reference in the Sanskrit epic poem Mahābhārata in which Draupadi is depicted as observing similar rites.

People carry materials which they are going to use for chhat puja in the chhat ghat. Rather thn celebrating this festival alone, many people gather at one place and perform this puja together.
