Chaitra Navratri 2023 Day 3: Navratri is a nine-day festival celebrated in the honour of Goddess Durga, commemorating her nine incarnations with jubilant celebrations. After worshipping Maa Shailputri on the first day and Maa Brahmani on the second, the third day of the Navratri is dedicated to Maa Chandraghanta, the married manifestation of Maa Durga. According to Hindu belief, Goddess Chandraghanta reigns over the planet Shukra.

History and Significance

Chandraghanta is a Sanskrit term which refers to "one with a bell-shaped half-moon." Being Maa Durga's third incarnation, Maa Chandraghanta adorns a half-moon on her forehead, hence she is known by this name. Hindu Mythology holds the belief that Maa Durga began wearing a half moon on her forehead after she got married. 

As per Drake Panchang, the 3rd day of Chaitra Navratri's tritiya tithi begins at 6:20 PM on March 23  and ends at 4:59 PM on March 24 , being the most fortunate time to worship Maa Chandraghanta.

After that, present Maa Chandraghanta with flowers, fragrance, incense, akshat, vermilion, and milk-based delicacies. Do Durga Saptashati, Durga Chalisa, and aarti after that.
