On the ninth date of Shardiya Navratri, Chief Minister and Gorakshapeethadhishwar Yogi Adityanath performed traditional girl worship with full rituals in the newly constructed food area (building) of Gorakhnath temple. He first offered prayers to nine girls and one Batuk Bhairav, symbolizing the nine forms of Mother Bhagwati, after that, after feeding them with his own hands, bid farewell to them with dakshina. During this, other girls who reached the temple were also given food and farewell with the same devotion. On this occasion, the Chief Minister said that the worship of mother power is the culture of our country. That is why on the ninth day of Navratri, there is a law to worship the girl.
The time of Kanya Puja was fixed at 12 noon, so the girls invited by the temple reached the place of worship before the scheduled time. The worship process started with the arrival of the Chief Minister. First of all, he raised nine girls and one Batuk Bhairav in Thar in turn and raised their feet. After that, after applying tika, chunari draped and aarti was done. After the worship, the program of Kanya Bhoj started.
