Purnima Vrat, dedicated to Goddess Savitri, is observed by married women on this day. Jyeshtha Purnima, as the name suggests, is observed during the Full Moon in the Hindu calendar month of Jyeshtha. On Purnima, women pray for their husbands’ happiness. On Purnima, in addition to Goddess Savitri, Lord Brahma, Yama, and Sage Narada are also honoured.
On Jyestha Purnima, it is very important to worship the Banyan tree, also known as Vat Vriksh. The Banyan tree is revered in India because of its large canopy, which provides shade from the sun. Weary travellers have been known to rest under the Vat Vriksh from time immemorial. The tree is regarded as a representation of divinity and purity. The Vat Vriksh, according to Hindu texts, represents the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Maheshwar — the three Gods that keep the cosmos in order. Devotees think that performing Jyeshtha Purnima Vrat Puja with dedication blesses the family with pleasure and prosperity.
Married Hindu women who regard Goddess Savitri to be their role model observe Jyeshtha Purnima. It is observed on a full moon day, which falls in the Hindu calendar month of jyeshth. The fortunate day would fall in the summer months of May or June, according to the Gregorian calendar.
In Hinduism, the Jyeshtha Purnima is extremely important. Pilgrims begin their journey to Amarnath Yatra on this day, taking Ganga Jal with them. Jyeshtha is the third month according to the Hindu calendar. The earth is quite hot during this time period. Many rivers and ponds are also drying up or losing water. As a result, the celebrations held during this time period emphasise the importance of water.
In Hinduism, the full moon in the month of June, known as Jyeshtha Purnima, is extremely significant. Vat Purnima is observed on this day, as well as the Vat Savitri fast.

A gramme and jaggery prasad is also distributed to the devotees.
