In Hinduism, each day of the week is dedicated to the worship of a specific god or goddess. The devotees perform specific rituals and prayers each week to honor the gods and goddesses and seek their blessings for prosperity, health, and happiness. Devotees often visit temples, perform pujas (rituals), chant mantras, and observe fasts dedicated to these deities on their respective days to seek their blessings. Though the tradition and specific guidelines differ based on regional traditions and familial customs, here's a general guideline on which deity is traditionally worshiped on each day of the week:
