Chhath is an ancient Hindu festival historically native to the Indian Subcontinent, more specifically, the Indian State of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand, and the southern parts of Nepal. Prayers during Chhath puja are dedicated to the solar deity, (surya), to show gratitude and thankfulness for bestowing the bounties of life on earth and to request that certain wishes be granted.

Chhathi Maiya, the sixth form of Devi Prakriti and Lord Surya's sister is worshipped as the Goddess of the festival. It is celebrated six days after Deepavali, on the sixth day of the lunar month of Kartika (October–November) in the Hindu calendar Vikram Sambat. The rituals are observed over four days. They include holy bathing, fasting and abstaining from drinking water (vrata), standing in water, and offering prasad (prayer offerings) and arghya to the setting and rising sun. Some devotees also perform a prostration march as they head for the river banks.

Environmentalist have claimed that the festival of Chhath is one of the most eco-friendly religious festivals in the World. All devotees prepare similar prasad (religious food) and offerings. Although the festival is observed most widely in the Terai region of Nepal and the Indian states of Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and Jharkhand, it is also prevalent in areas where the diaspora and migrants from those areas have a presence. It is celebrated in all northen region and major north Indian urban centers like Delhi. Hundreds of thousands of people celebrate it in Mumbai.
