Special worship is performed on this day for Lord Kuber, Ganesh Ji, and Goddess Lakshmi. This time, the final Sun planet of the year will also be visible over the five days of Diwali Mahaparv. On October 25, this eclipse will take place. Many areas of the country will be able to observe this partial eclipse.

When do solar eclipses happen?
The eclipse has highly significant meaning from both a religious and astronomical standpoint. When the Sun, Moon, and Earth are nearly in line with one another, a solar eclipse that happens on the new moon day occurs, according to the Hindu calendar. This occurrence is known as a solar eclipse. The Sun, Moon, and Earth will all be in line at this hour on October 25, the day after Diwali. In such a case, the Sun is momentarily partially obscured by the Moon. The country will be able to see the solar eclipse on October 25 at roughly 4.30 pm.
Solar Eclipse Panch Mahaparv and Diwali Mahaparv Beginning with Dhanteras on October 22nd, Diwali will begin. Then, on October 23 and 24, respectively, Roop Chaudas and Diwali will be observed. On October 25, there will be a partial solar eclipse, hence no event will be held on that day. Following that, Bhai Dooj and Govardhan Puja festivals will be observed on October 26 and 27, respectively.
Starting on October 25, the Sutak period will be in effect.
From a religious perspective, when a solar eclipse happens, the Sutak period goes into effect, and it begins 12 hours before the solar eclipse. The solar eclipse will begin in India on October 26 at 4.30 p.m., hence the Sutak period will start 12 hours earlier. As a result, Govardhan Puja will be observed on October 26 rather than October 25. During the Sutak era, no worship or auspicious labor is performed. On this day, all temples’ doors remain shut. Gangajal is spread all over the house after the eclipse.
