Devotees gathered to offer final ‘Arghya’ to rising sun on the final day of Chhath Puja across the country. Thousands of devotees thronged to banks of river bodies to offer prayers to the ‘Sun God’. Chhath Puja is celebrated on the sixth day Kartik month of Hindu calendar. Every year, the festival commences with paying obeisance to the setting sun and concludes with the rising sun.
