Panchang for Mumbai, India.
In Hindu calendar, the day starts with
local sunrise and ends with next day local sunrise.
As sunrise time is different for all cities, Hindu
Calendar made for one city is not valid for any
other city. Hence it is important to use location
based Hindu Calendar, like this website. Further,
each Hindu day consists of five elements, which are
called angas. These five elements are:
5. Var (weekday of seven days week)
In Hindu Calendar, all five elements
together are called Panchang. (In
Sanskrit: Panchang = pancha(five) +ang(part)).
Hence Hindu Calendar which shows all five elements
for each day is called Panchang. In South
India Panchang is known as Panchangam.
When Hindu Calendar includes Muslims,
Sikh, Christian, Buddhist and Jain festivals,
including national holidays, it is called as Indian
