indiansinnz.com 2019 Calendar covering all religious festivals, New Zealand National Holidays, Indian National Holidays, Selected Sports Events and Lunar day details (Hindu Tithi तिथी).

Monthly calendar is best viewed on larger screen (PC/Laptop/Tablet).

We bring you a unique blend of National (both New Zealand & Indian) and Religious calendar. The Indian / Hindu lunar day or tithi (तिथी) mentioned here are as per New Zealand time. When city is not mentioned, Auckland time is taken as standard time to calculate Sunrise-Sunset (सूर्योदय / सूर्यास्त समय), Moonrise-Moonset time (चंद्रोदय / चंद्रास्त समय). Please read our disclaimer below.

Hindu year Vikram Samvat (विक्रम संवत) 2076: from 6th April 2019 to 25th March 2020

Disclaimer: Though all the precautions are taken to calculate exact calendar / tithi as per New Zealand Time, there may be some differences. This may be because Sun Rise/Set and Moon Rise/Set timings differ at every place.

First day after no Moon day (अमावस्या) is considered here as first day of Hindu Month. This is called Amant Calendar (अमान्त पंचांग). In few parts of India first day of Hindu Month is considered on one day after Full Moon (पूर्णिमा) and the calendar is known as Purnimant Calendar (पूर्णिमान्त पंचांग). Only month name changes in these two methods. Tithi still remains the same. For example, if the tithi is Shukla paksh Chaturthi (शुक्ल पक्ष चतुर्थी), it remains same in both the methods.

We are committed to provide accurate information on our portal, however, we do not take any responsibility on accuracy of the calendar, events or Panchang published here. For more information about terms and conditions, please click here.
