The fifth day of Navratri is worshiped of Skandamata. Devotes offer great reverence to Skandamata on Panchami of Durga Pooja. She is the mother of Kartikeya, who was chosen by gods as their commander in the war against the demons when all Devta (gods), Manushya (Human) and Rishi-Muni (holymen, saint) was tired from torment as well as domination of colossal giant Tarakasur, and that time only Kumar kartikey is the only almighty who demolished the tyranny of Devil Tarakasur. Being the mother of powerful deity (Kumar Kartikey) Maa Parvati is glorified with name 'Skanda Mata'. Skandamata is true Goddess of endurance. She has four-arm holding six-faced infant Kumar Kartikey in her lap. Right and left upper hands hold lotus flower.

Worshipping Skandamata on the fifth day of Navratri Puja has great significance. Skandamata elegant appearance mesmerizes the worshippers. Skandamata is the true Goddess of purity.
