Jaya Parvati Vrat is observed for five days. The Vrat starts on the 13th day in the Shukla Paksha (waxing phase of moon) in the month of Ashada (June – July).
Goddess Parvati and Lord Shiva are worshipped during the five-day period. Various poojas dedicated to Shiva and Parvati like the Uma Maheshwar puja are performed during this period.
Salt is completely avoided during the five days of Vrata. Wheat and vegetables are also avoided.
On the fifth day, an all night vigil or ‘jagran’ is kept by those observing the Vrata. This staying awake during the night is referred as Jayaparvati Jagran.
