For Lakshmi puja on Diwali, most Hindu households adorn their homes and workplace with marigold flowers and ashoka, mango, and banana leaves. It is considered auspicious to have Mangalik Kalash topped with unpeeled coconut on both sides of the home’s main doors. Most pujas are traditionally conducted after a day of fasting. As a reason, on the day of Lakshmi puja, devotees hold a day-long fast. After Lakshmi Puja in the evening, the fast is broken.
