Sakat Chauth is an auspicious day dedicated to Lord Ganesh in a traditional Hindu lunar month of Maagh. It falls on Maagh Krishn 4th. Many people keep this fast every month on Krishn 4th. This is very popular monthly fast dedicated to Vinaayak in India. Devotees observe a fast (fasting or Upavaas) on this day from sunrise and ends after sighting the Moon.
