    History, Significance and Importance of Karwa Chauth in India

    The origin of Karwa Chauth can be traced back to Mahabharata when Savitri begged the God of Death, Lord Yama, for her husband’s soul. Another episode in the epic talks about Pandavas and their wife Draupadi.

    Arjuna went to the Nilgiris to pray and meditate for a few days, worried about his safety Draupadi sought her brother Krishna’s help. He advised her to observe a strict fast just like Goddess Parvati did for her husband Shiva’s safety. Draupadi adhered to it, and soon Arjuna returned home safely.
