Panchang, also known as Hindu Vedic Calendar, is a yearly compilation of all Hindu festivals, auspicious timings, tithis, vrat etc. Most of these festivals & auspicious dates are calculated after careful examination of the position of the Sun and the Moon. ‘Tithi’ plays an important role in determining dates & timings for Hindu festivals. Sometimes, timings for these festivals differ in two different countries/cities due to different time zone and hence, it is always advised to look for panchang for your current location.

‘Vrat’, also known as fasting, is a very common ritual in Hindu festivals and has a specific date and time for each festival. While some festivals include day-long fasting, some require fasting for only a specific timing. Below is the list of all the important dates and festivals in the upcoming year, as per Hindu Panchang 2017:
