KARWA CHAUTH / KARVA CHOTH 2021 in New Zealand

Karwa Chauth Puja Muhurat करवा चौथ पूजा मुहुर्त  – 24 Oct 2021, 07:45pm to 08:50pm as per Auckland time

Check Covid alert level to impact community / temple programs. Stay Safe, Stay Healthy! Auckland will remain in Level 3 on Karwa Chauth day.

If you are unable to see moon due to cloud, no worries. Traditional practice is to pray and eat in the morning after sunrise. In our opinion, since exact moon rise time is accurately known now-a-days, if it too cloudy, it is fine to pray and eat few minutes after moon rise time.

This year 2021, due to alert level restrictions, group prayers shall be restricted as per current alert level in your city. Auckland will remain in level 3 thus groups prayers are not permitted. Please check with your nearest temple about their Puja day and time (usually this would be 3pm onwards), this year many temples are organising online pooja.  Click here to see our list of temples in New Zealand.
