Vat Savitri Vrat celebrations take place on Vat Savitri Poornima every year in the summer season. This is a special period of fasting and prayers by married women who pray for the long life and welfare of their partner. It takes place on Trayodashi day, according to the Indian calendar, in the month of Jyestha and the vrat completes on the day of Poornima.
