The Skanda Sashti or Kanda Sashti Vratham is a vital recognition. It is particularly for Lord Muruga. Devotees watch quick amid "Shukla Paksha" Sashti day. As to "Skanda Sashti Vratam", the day when "Sashti Tithi" merges with "Panchami Tithi", it is observed. Thus "Skanda Sashti Vratam" may be seen on Panchami Tithi. The month to month Shasti fasting starts at dawn. It is broken the following day, at dawn subsequent to offering obeisance to Lord Surya. Devotees go to Murugan Temple on Shasti.
