Legend has it that the importance Pithori Amavasi Vrat was narrated to the wife of Lord Indra by Goddess Parvati. It is believed that performing this Vrata will help in attaining healthy and brave sons.

Married women observe Pithori Amavasi for the good health and well being of their children. In some regions, Goddess Durga, 64 Yoginis and Saptamatrikas are worshipped on the day.

Pitha means flour and women make idols of Goddess Durga using the flour. Some communities make 64 small shapes using flour representing the deities.
