Braj Mandir - Karwa Chauth Puja
Karva is another word for clay pot (a small earthen pot used to keep the water cool, and also used for puja) and chauth means 'fourth' in Hindi (a reference to the fact that the festival falls on the fourth day of the dark-fortnight, or krishna paksh, of the month of Kartik)

Once Arjuna went to the Nilgiris for penance and the rest of the Pandavas faced many problems in his absence. Draupadi, remembered Lord Krishna. Lord Krishna advised her to observe the fast of Karva Chauth. Draupadi followed the instructions and observed the fast with all its rituals. Consequently, the Pandavas were able to overcome their problems. Karva Chauth is considered to be a romantic festival, symbolizing the love between a husband and wife. Braj Mandir pramots that both husband and wife should fast until the moon rise.
