This festival is celebrated widely in North Karnataka. This festival falls on the 8th day of the Hindu month Bhadrapada, August – September of Gregorian calendar. For the festival dates click here.. Elle Astami is also known as Jesta Devi Pooja.
Those families who have been celebrating this festival since generations usually perform Ele Ashtami pooja. The pooja ritual is very similar to Swarna Gowri Vratha. The only difference in this festival is that 16 threads dipped in turmeric paste are tied with flowers and kept in front of the idol. This is then tied on the neck of the ladies who perform the pooja.
Habbada adige is prepared on this day and enjoyed with family and friends.
