Bat savitri is mainly the festival of married women. All the married women keep fasts since the morning for the long life of their husbands. In the evening, they worship goddess savitri who fought with yamraj for the life of her husband. According to the tradition, women offer water to the banyan tree as it is believed that satyavan took shelter under the banyan tree when he was about to die. This festival is celebrated with a great zeal and enthusiasm.
