Hinduism almost certainly has a longer list of festivals than any other religious tradition, and there are considerable regional and denominational variations.

The Hindu calendar is based on lunar months corresponding to the phases of the moon. In one year there are twelve months of 29.5 days, accounting for a total of 354 days. The shortfall means that the date of each festival moves back 11 days each year. To rectify this, an extra leap month is added about once every three years. The Hindu calendar is therefore luni-solar, with a precise month and an approximate year.

Hinduism is often described as a religion of fasts, feasts and festivals. Here we are sharing you the Hindu Traditional Calendar for all to keep eye on Great festivals and Fasts of India.
