Kathmandu, Nepal, November 19, 2023: Chhath festival, one of the major festivals of the country that predominantly observed in the Terai-Madhes region, is being observed today with much-more fanfare.

In the third day of the four-day long Chhath festival that falls today devotees worship the setting sun by offering argha. Likewise, in the fourth day or last day of the festival, devotes follow the same process to worship the rising sun on Monday morning.

The devotees stay awake all night and offer prayers to the rising sun by reaching out in the nearby rivers, streams and ponds.

To observe the festival, the government has announced a public holiday today.
