The Chhath Puja is dedicated to the Sun and his sister Chhathi Maiya in order to thank them for bestowing the bounties of life on earth and to request the granting of certain wishes. Chhath does not involve any idol worship. This festival is observed by bihari and Indian people, along with their diaspora. This is a final day of Chhath Puja in which devotees along with family and friends offer Bihaniya Aragh (Early Morning Offering) to the Sun God at the riverside (bank of river). And at last the devotees end their fast with Chhath Puja Prasad.
