Chaitra Navratri is a time of great significance for Hindus around the world, as the nine days and nights of Navratri are the time to worship Maa Durga with devotion.

The festival is celebrated for nine days, with each day dedicated to a different form of Maa Jagdamba. During this period, devotees worship, perform rituals and fast to seek the blessings of the Goddess. This festival symbolizes the victory of good over evil. Maa Durga is considered as the form of Shakti.

Ashtami, which falls on the eighth day of the festival, is considered a very auspicious day, and the goddess is pleased with elaborate worship rituals and offerings.
