Chaitra Navratri is being celebrated all over the world as Hindus keep fast for all the nine days. Each of the nine days is dedicated to the particular goddess and it is believed that for these auspicious nine days, goddess descends on earth for her devotees. The eighth day of Chaitra Navratri 2019 is popularly known as Maha Ashtami or Durga Ashtami, is dedicated to Goddess Mahagauri. On this day, coconut is offered in the form of bhog to please the deity. For prasad, you can also make coconut ladoo or barfi. Apart from this, traditional fare of poori, chana and halwa are prepared on this day.

Sandhi puja is done at a point of time when Ashtami tithi ends and Navmi tithi starts. This puja has a special significance during the festival of Navratri. So, sandhi puja is done at that time when, as per the tithi, Ashtami ends and Navami begins. It is very important for those who have fasted throughout Navratri.
