Lavanya Gowri Vrata

Lavanya Gowri Vratha, or Lavanya Gowri Vratham, is an auspicious day dedicated to Goddess Parvati. In 2025, the date of Lavanya Gowri Vrata is May 2. The fasting observed on the day by women of certain Hindu communities is dedicated to Goddess Gauri – another name of Goddess Parvati.

Lavanya Gowri Vratha is observed on the fifth day during the waxing phase of moon in Chithirai month in Tamil Nadu. The corresponding month in Kannada calendar is the fifth day of the Shukla Paksha of Vaisakh month.

Lavanya Gowri Vrata is quite similar to the famous Swarna Gowri Vrata observed in Karnataka during Ganesh Chaturthi. But the Lavanya Gowri Vrata is not as famous as the Swarna Gowri Vratha and is observed only certain communities.
