Sankashti Chaturthi, also known as Sankashti or Sankata Hara Chaturthi, is an auspicious day dedicated to Lord Ganesha which is celebrated every month of Hindu Calendar on the Chaturthi (4th day) of the Krishna Paksha (waning lunar phase after the full moon).
When Sankashti Chaturthi falls on Tuesday it is known as Angarki Chaturthi. This day is considered to be highly auspicious.
Sankashti Chaturthi fast is mostly observed in Western and Southern India especially in Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu. On this day, the devotees observe strict fast. They break the fast at night after having darshan/auspicious sight of the moon preceded by prayers to Lord Ganesha.
