World Panchangam (Sanskrit pañcāṅgam ) is a Hindu astrological almanac, which follows traditional Indian cosmology, and presents important astronomical data in tabulated form.
Highlights of this app:
1. Calculated based on the precise dRuk-gaNita system.
2. Precise Rahu Kalam and Yema Gandam based on your location's Sunrise for the day. This is important because more often that not Rahu Kalam/Yema Gandam starts before the general timing and also may last longer.
3. Works when you are off-line too.
Panchangam in Sanskrit means '5 elements" of a day. They are:
Tithi - Ending Moment (EM) of elongation of the Moon, the lunar day , the angular relationship between Sun and Moon ( True Moon minus True Sun). One Tithi equals 12 degree difference between Moon and Sun.
Nakshatra - EM of asterism of the day, that is, the stellar mansion in which Moon is located for an observer on Earth. One Nakshatra equals 13 degrees:20 minutes. There are 27 Nakshatra in 360 degrees.
Yoga - EM of the angular relationship between Sun and Moon( True Moon plus True Sun). One Yoga equals 13 degrees:20 minutes. There are 27 Yogas in 360 degrees.
Karana - EM of half of a Tithi. One Karaṇa equals 6 degree difference between Moon and Sun.
Var weekday the seven weekdays.
Wolrd Panchangam provides all the above mentioned 5 elements plus Rahu Kalam, Yema Gandam as well as sunrise / sunset for a given day in Hindu Calendar for more than 350+ locations worldwide.
