Calendar of Festivals for February 2023: brief description of the various festivals that take place in January.


Put your life into the spirit of celebration! Because India is known for its diversity and religious faith, we celebrate a lot of festivals throughout the year. As a result, we treat every day like a celebration. Every festival has great cultural value, regardless of where we come from. India's festivals give people a chance to unwind and celebrate with complete zeal and enthusiasm.


It goes without saying that the dates of most Indian festivals do not follow the Gregorian calendar. Thus, recollecting all dates is a major undertaking for ourselves and, surprisingly, problematic as well. This is why we have provided you with the Indian Festival calendar for 2023. Now, all you need to know about the festival's dates, muhurat times, legends, and puja rituals is one click.


The Indian Festival Calendar is determined by the movement of the Sun and Moon. Therefore, there are thirty distinct calendars for regional, cultural, and customary celebrations. Therefore, holidays are included in the Gregorian calendar to unite all festivals and bring them together on one platform. This helps us maintain our enthusiasm for festivals. Even though the dates are based on the Gregorian calendar, the festival is celebrated in accordance with regional and ethnic traditions that take into account all religious beliefs and practices.


Hindu Panchang, also known as Panchagam, is used to align Indian festivals with the Gregorian calendar and establish favorable Puja timings. The lunisolar system serves as the foundation for the Shaka Samvat and Vikram Samvat calendars, which begin with Chaitra month. However, Shukla Paksha's Chaitra Pratipada is either in March or April.
