According to Hindu religious rituals many hindus performed Pind Daan or Shraddha at Gayaji. Hindus observe the ancestral ritual of Pind Daan or Shradh, which they believe would help their dead ancestors attain salvation and to ward off restless spirits affecting their family members. Though the Pinddan can be performed almost any time of the year, people prefer to do it during Pitripaksha, which is the period just before Navratri and generally falls in September. Shraddha is to the ritual performed by a Hindu to offer homage to one's deceased ancestors (Pitri). It is believed that after the performance of the ritual, the soul of the dead relative is appeased and it attains Moksha (salvation).
