Chhath Puja is a popular practice of 'sun worship' in Bihar, Uttar Pradesh and various parts of the India at this time of the year.
This year, several devotees gathered at water bodies across the state to perform rituals on the occasion of Chhath Puja.
During the puja, devotees offer various items, such as fruits, while they go about performing the age-old ritual.
Guirim and Baga, both in North Goa, also saw devotees, young and old, immersed in the traditional practice of sun worship.
The puja is offered in honour of the Sun God and Chhathi (Shashti) devi, the Sun God's sister, who is considered to be the epitome of motherly love.
On this day, women observe a fast for the well-being of their sons and the happiness of their families.
After the rituals, the fast is broken by cooking a meal.
