Hindu Calendar 2024 – Know The Dates of Hindu Festivals and Tithis as per Panchang

“The Hindu calendar is also known as Panchanga. It is followed by Hindus around the globe for various social and religious purposes. It is quite a unique calendar because it is based on  both solar as well as lunar cycles.”

Hinduism is the world’s third-largest religion, with about one billion adherents worldwide. This amazing religion is known for having a large number of festivals. In the year 2024, all these festivals will be celebrated on the basis of the Hindu Calendar 2024. It lists all the important vrats, tithis, and festivals of Hindus. It also helps to establish the correct time for important Hindu rituals such as weddings and starting new businesses (Mahurat).

The Hindu calendar is different from the Gregorian calendar in many ways. One of the major differences is that unlike the western calendar, it doesn’t add additional days to the month to adjust for the mismatch between 12 lunar cycles and 365 solar days. Instead, it inserts an entire month after every 32 to 33 months. If you are planning for some important life event like marriage or buying something expensive then you should know the Hindu Calendar 2024. It is important to plan such things on the correct mahurat to make them auspicious.
