According to mythology, it is believed that Devi Durga's battle against Mahishasur, the king of demons lasted for nine days. The ninth day is the final day before the Goddess won over the evil Mahisasura with her power and wisdom. Among some of the major rituals performed this day are pushpanjali and balidan.  An important ritual of 'Nabami hom' is done at the end of Navami Puja. In some places, the ancient tradition of Navami or Nabami 'balidan' or sacrifice of animals is still practised. However, in most places, fruits and vegetables are sacrificed in place of animals. Another important ritual of Sandhi Puja is done at the juncture when Ashtami Tithi ends and Navami Tithi starts.
