There are 24 Ekadashis observed by Hindus during the year. Vaikunth Ekadashi is observed in November. Ekadashi is celebrated in the honour of Goddess Ekadashi. People fast and pray to the goddess. In Maharashtra, pilgrims march in a procession, singing bhajans or devotional songs and assemble at the Vithal Temple in Pandharpur.
