A List Hindu Festivals

Hindu festivals are celebrated complete with its diversities. Sometimes the same festival would have location led interpretations, or minor differences in how it must be celebrated. Here’s a comprehensive list of festivals, that most often follow planetary positions of the sun and the moon. Furthermore there are mahurats and timings for the festivals and they too have to be considered while planning for the celebrations.

While this is a comprehensive festival calendar, India has many more festivals outside the Hindu calendar. As a secular country we celebrate different religions and every single month there are different festivals, complete with rituals and celebrations.
