Surya Grahan Rituals and Fasting in Hinduism
If you follow any rituals and observe fasting during this Grahan, then it should be followed.

Hindu Temples will remain closed during morning hours on the day.

It is considered highly auspicious to take holy dip on the day in rivers, seas and other sacred water bodies.

Usually during a Surya Grahan, a fast (Upvaas) is observed by certain communities in Hindu religion. The fast begins about 9 hours before the beginning of Surya Grahan.

People also take a bath in cold water and chant mantras dedicated to Lord Vishnu or Shiva like the Ashtakshara Mantra or Mrityunjaya Mantra. This is done whenever Surya and Chandra are under the influence of Rahu. Pregnant women chant the Santana Gopala Mantra.
