Saraswati Puja time and date (more commonly known as Muhrat) are supposed to coincide with Panchami Tithi. The puja is usually performed in the morning, between sunrise and midday. The most auspicious time is from 7:12 am to 12:34 pm. And this year, it falls on 1st February.
The puja is performed not only in the households but also in schools, colleges and other educational Institutions. Of course no Indian festival is complete without delicious traditional sweets to ring in the celebrations. Fresh fruits like bananas and apples are also included in the prasad along with other regional treats.
