Besides this, Lord Shiva has killed the dreadful demon, Tripur on this day. Accordingly, all the Gods and Lord Vishnu himself, named him as Tripurari and thus, this day is also known as Tripurari Purnima.

As per beliefs, bathing either in river Ganga, any other holy river or at any religious place, followed by giving alms, brings prosperity, longevity and disease free life. While followers of Lord Shiva worship him, on the other hand Lord Vishnu is worshiped by his followers, on this day. Donating calves is also significant, on this day.

It is believed that if Bharani Nakshatra (constellation) is there on this day, it becomes more significant. As this year, Bharani Nakshatra is prevailing during Moonrise; hence, importance of this Kartik Purnima is manifold.
