This is how once in a day; Devi Mangala Gauri is worshipped amongst the Maharashtrians, throughout the Shravan month.
With sixteen different types of fruits, laddus, and five different types of dry fruits, Marathi women worship Devi Gauri every Tuesday; hence, the name comes Mangal Gaur. It is to notice that, number 16 is significant to this occasion owing to a mythological belief.
