Hindu Panchangam - 2016 Online Panchangam Calendars & PDF Downloads
Hindu Panchangam (or Panchang) is the Hindu Vedic Astrological Calendar that follows traditional
units of Indian timekeeping, and presents important dates and their calculations in a tabulated form. Panchangam refers to the five important
astrological attributes of the day known as Tithi (lunar day), Karana (semi lunar day), Vara (week day), Nakshatra (star) and
Yoga (luni-solar day) that are calculated for a specific place. Hence Panchangam data differs from one place to the other.
Astrologers use Panchangam to determine auspicious timings (called Muhurtha) for various religious events. Hindus look for
an auspicious time (subha-muhurtha) which ensures proper balance of the five attributes (Tithi, Vaara, Nakshatra, Yoga
and Karana) before starting any important work or event.
