Check the auspiciousness of any day & time

Panchangam by Pandit S.P. Tata

Tithi, Vara, Nakshatra, Yoga and Karana are the five elements of time called panch-anga. These are based on the positions of Sun and Moon – the two important luminaries - and are used to know the auspiciousness of any date and time (muhurtha) for any important undertaking like journey, buying, selling, marriage, puja, vrata, shraddhas, etc. Apart from these five main elements of time, the traditional Panchanga also gives details about the daily Lagnas, Horas, good and bad times in a day etc. Our Panchanga uses the highly accurate Nasa Ephemeries and the Chaitrapaksha Ayanamsha (Lahiri) and is the most accurate and informative one available on the web.
