  16. This blog has all the information about Mangala Gauri Vratham. One who missed the vratha to perform in first year after marriage can start Mangala Gowri vratha in their second year. Mangala Gouri Vratha is performed for 5 consecutive years after marriage. In 5th year, Vratha Udhyapana is performed. First, Ganapati Puja is perfomred and reciting Sankalpam of Puja, shodashopachar (16 steps of puja) is done. Mangala Gauri astottara shatanamavali is recited. Then naivedya is offered to mangala gauri. The day after Gauri Vratham, Goddess is releaved or Udhwasana is done. You can browse hindupad for more results.
