Significance of Paush Poornima

Paush Poornima is the full moon night in the month of Paush (December – January). It is an important bathing date during Kumbh Mela and Magh mela. Paush Poornima is highly auspicious and devotees visit temples on this day.

Rarely, Makar Sankranti and Paush Poornima fall on the same day making it even more highly auspicious.
