About Chaitra Navratri

Chaitra Navratri is a nine-day festival that begins on the first day of the lunu-solar Hindu calendar and falls in March or April. Chaitra is the first month of the Hindu lunar calendar and that is why this Navratri is known as Chaitra Navratri. Chaitra Navratri is also known as Vasanta Navratri. Sri Rama Navami, Lord Rama’s birthday usually falls on the ninth day during Navratri festival. Therefore, Chaitra Navratri is also known as Rama Navratri.

The nine days of Navratri are dedicated to nine forms of the goddess Shakti. Most of the customs and rituals followed during Shardiya Navratri, which falls in the months of September or October, are also followed during Chaitra Navratri. Ghatasthapana Puja procedure for Shardiya Navratri and Chaitra Navratri is the same thing.

Chaitra Navratri is a popular festival in north India. In Maharashtra, Chaitra Navratri begins with Gudi Padwa and in Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka begins with Ugadi(New Year).
