Karva Chauth Moonrise Time in Jammu & Kashmir

Time of Moon Rise : 08:15 PM

Karva Chauth is a festival traditionally celebrated by Hindu women across the world. Observed generally by married women and those reaching the marriageable age, on this day, they fast from sunrise to moonrise praying for the safety and long life of their husbands, fiancés or desired husbands.

In India, the festival is mainly observed in states like Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh, Haryana, Punjab and parts of Uttar Pradesh.

The fourth day of the Hindu lunisolar calendar marks Karva Chauth. Women rigorously observe fast on this day, with some not even drinking water. According to Mahabharatha’s Vana Parva, Karva Chauth’s origins can be traced back to the time when Savitri begged the god of death, Lord Yama for her husband’s soul.

Women celebrate the festival with so much of fervour and start preparing for it days in advance. They wear bright and beautiful outfits, bridal colours are preferred. They apply beautiful and intricate mehendi designs on their hands and wait till the moon to rise before they eat anything.
