    Thanks a lot. I am sorry, I could not find the time of Chandrodaya, I mean when the moon rises on the day of Sankat Chaturthi in the main cities of India. If not viable, some links of other websites may be given to serve the purpose.


  2. sandhya rani says:

    can u give the timings of moon raising?

  3. Sweta says:


    Thx a lot for the sankashti dates. I am looking for moonrise. I am in Mauritius, Moonrise is different else would have posted the times 🙂

    Between, can someone tell me the difference between ekadashi, purnima and amavasya? I visited lots of sites, but i didnt get a clear explanation specially for ekadashi.

    Thx in advance!

    I just started fasting, want to know the do’s& dont’s about fasting, any pooja/abhishekham needs to be performed in the temple in the morning? while breaking the fast what has to be done -pooja and sloka chanting, weather prasad making is mandatory? if moon doesn’t appear what has to be done? kindly some one give me inside….


    • Naveen Kumar Sanagala says:

      Hi Sirisha! Visiting the temple, abhishekam and morning puja are also not necessary. Offering food or naivedyam to Lord Ganesha is mandatory. You can even offer fruits, or banana smash with milk to Ganesh. Seeing the moon means, you need to break the fast after 7.00 in the evening. There is rule that you should break the fast after seeing moon…. in winter rarely you can see moonrise…. 🙂

  10. Babaji says:

    I just started the vrat. What need to be done if you can not see the moon due to bad weather even till the next day, Can some one reply please.


    • Naveen Sanagala says:

      If the moon is not appearing in the sky even after the Chandrodaya time (Moonrise timing), you can perform Sankashti Ganesha Puja just after worshipping (praying to) Chandra.
