It is of great significance to the devotees. The mythological tells us that Goddess Kali, a form of Goddess Shakti defeated and killed the demon Narakasura. Thus, it got the name of Naraka Chaturdashi. Also, this day is regarded as the victory of good over evil. People believe worshipping Kali eliminates evil, laziness, and bad things.
Devotees believe that performing rituals on this particular day keep all the bad things away from their lives. There are various traditions and customs which are performed. All varies with the regions and beliefs. As a part of the culture, people take a bath with the mixture of til and sandal oil to improve their looks. That’s why it got the name of Roop Chaudas.

People wake up earlier than usual on this morning and that too before sunrise. They use til oil, sandal oil, and flowers to take a bath and then, offer prayers and do Kali Puja with flowers, agarbatti, camphor, and other necessary stuff. The purpose of observing this festival is to kill the inner demon like maa kali did by killing Narakasura.
Another story behind this day is of pious and righteous king Ranti Dev. At the time of death, Yam Dev (the God of Death) came to take his soul and take it in Naraka (Hell). He got shocked knowing of this and said that he hadn’t done any sin in his life, then why has he been taken to the Hell. Yama Dev replied that he did accidentally just before his death.
