On the ninth day of the Navratri, goddess is worshipped as Durga and offered sugarcane stalks. Kanya puja is also practiced on this day in different parts of India like Punjab, Harayana, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. In Kanya puja, nine young girls are invited in houses and are feasted with puri, chana ki sabzi, kheer, halwa etc. These girls are treated as nine forms of the goddess and are honored by washing their feet and putting tilak on their forehead. Devotees also present them certain gifts like clothes, fruits etc.

In Kerala, Saraswati puja is practiced on asthmi, a day before mahanavmi. The mahanavmi day is treated as resting day. People don't begin new activities on this day and children don't even study on this day.

The celebrations of navratri end on asthmi instead of navmi in some parts of Kashmir, Harayana, Uttar Pradesh and Maharastra. Asthmi, the eight day of navratri is also considered as the birthday of Parvati, the form of Durga.

Jwala Mein Hai Jyoti Tumhari, Tumhein Sada Poojey Nar Nari
Prem Bhakti Se Jo Yash Gave, Dukh Daridra Nikat Nahin Aave

Dhyaave Tumhein Jo Nar Man Layi, Janma Maran Tako Chhouti Jaayi
Yogi Sur Muni Kahat Pukaari, Yog Na Hoye Bina Shakti Tumhari
