Annakut Puja is the most observed ritual on Nutan Varsh or Bestu Varsh (Gujarati New Year). It is observed on Kartik Sud 1, next day to Diwali, mainly in Gujarat. In 2020, Annakut date is November 15, as per many standard Gujarati calendars.
In all mandirs, Annakut is offered to the deities on this auspicious day. Varieties of vegetarian recipes are arranged in tiers or steps in front of the deities. Sweet recipes occupy the nearest tiers or steps of the Lord.
Annakut is also known as Chappan Bhog as 56 types of dishes are offered to Lord Govardhan on this day.
In most of the temples, Annakut Puja starts in the morning and ends before afternoon. Arranging the food recipes takes lot of time. After Annakut Puja, devotees are allowed to visit the Lord.
Swaminarayan Mandirs are the best places to visit during Annakut Puja. Bhuj Swaminarayan Temple attracts lakhs of devotees at the time of Nutan Varsh.
