Hartalika Puja

Hartalika Puja is performed every year during Shukla paksha tritiya of bhadrapada month.
This generally falls one day before "Ganesh Chaturthi" and three days after 'pola' amavasya.

On this day statue of God Shiva and Godess Parvati are made of Soil from tulsi flower pot for worshipping.
The mud idols are then  worshipped for marital bliss.
Its made like this because the story says goddess parvati also did puja of clay shivling in deep forest to pray to have only God Shiva as her husband....

Lot of leaves from different trees and flowers are used for ritual.

Next day udyapan is done with nevedyam of curd and rice and then the clay idols are submerged in water.
