The context is found in Valmiki and Anand Ramayana
According to Valmiki and Anand Ramayana, Mother Goddess had once stayed for six days at Sita Charan in the historical city of Munger and performed Chhath Puja. When Lord Ram returned to Ayodhya after 14 years of exile, he decided to perform Rajsuya Yagya on the orders of sages to absolve himself of the sin of killing Ravana.
