Ardhya is given to the setting sun
Before going to the ghat, the devotees decorate the items of worship, seasonal fruits, thekua, kasar, sugarcane etc. in bamboo baskets and after that they reach the ghat barefoot from home. After this, take a bath and offer Ardhya to the setting sun. Chhath Puja is the first such festival in which the setting sun is worshiped and Arghya is offered to him. Celebrated in some parts of Bihar, Jharkhand and UP, there is a tradition of celebrating this holy festival with great decency, simplicity and faith.
This is recognition
It is believed that in the evening, the Sun God spends time with his consort Goddess Pratyusha. This is the reason that in Chhath Puja, the setting sun is offered Ardhya in the evening.
The time of sunset to offer Arghya to the Sun is 5.30 pm and the sunrise time is 6.41 am on the fourth day of Chhath Puja.
