Chaturthi is the fourth day from no-moon day and full moon day.
Fourth day from full moon day is called as Sankashti or Sankata Hara Chaturthi.
If Sankashti Chaturthi comes on Tuesday it is called as Angarki Chaturthi. It is considered to be highly auspicious day and is dedicated to Lord Ganesha. Ganesha devotees observe a fast (fasting – upvaas) on Sankashta Chaturthi Vrata days.
