Mangaldosh Pooja is a Hindu puja (worship) ritual performed to appease the planet Mars (Mangal in Hindi) and seek its blessings. It is usually performed by Hindus who are facing problems or difficulties in their lives that are believed to be caused by the malefic effects of Mars. The puja is performed to reduce the negative effects of Mars and bring prosperity and good luck to the person.

The Mangaldosh Pooja is usually performed at the Mangalnath Temple in Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh, India, which is dedicated to the planet Mars. However, it can also be performed at home or at any other place of worship.

The puja involves the offering of various items such as flowers, incense, and ghee to the deity, as well as the recitation of mantras and prayers. It is usually conducted by a Hindu priest, who follows the prescribed guidelines and rituals for the puja.

The Mangaldosh Pooja is generally considered more auspicious when performed on Tuesdays, which are considered the day of Mars. It can be performed on any day, but it is recommended to consult a Hindu priest or astrologer before performing the puja to determine the most suitable day and time.
