The festival has a special place in Hindu culture as it is believed that the women who worship Goddess Parvati on this day are blessed with good fortune. Lord Shiva and Kartikeya are the other deities worshipped on this day. On this day, women wear ethnic clothing, primarily sarees and salwar suits, and adorn themselves with customary symbols of a married woman, such as the Sindoor.

The Puja is done in the evening, following which women break their fast upon sighting the moon. As for the Pujas, they're mostly performed in groups by women and afterwards the chauth is given as charity to Brahmin. Some important items required during the Puja include Water, Milk, Kumkum, Honey, Chandan, Sugar, Curd, Incense sticks, Camphor and Karwa. 

Karva Chauth is widely celebrated in the North part of India, including Punjab, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Himachal Pradesh, and Rajasthan.
