Sashti is the sixth day after Purnima (Full Moon) or Amavasya (No Moon) in Hindu calendar. Monthly Sashti 2020 dates are given here. Sashti Viratham is an auspicious vratham dedicated to Lord Subramanya or Murugan.

Skanda Sashti is the most popular festival observed in Aippasi month of Tamil calendar. Devotees observe fasting on Sashti day and worship Murugan with Shodashopachara puja.

Though both the sashti vrathams that come in every month are important, devotees consider Shashti viratham which falls after No Moon or Amavasya as significant one.

In 2020, Sashti Viratham begins with Margazhi Sashti Viratham and ends with Margazhi Shashti. There are 13 Shashti Viratham in 2020.

Among all the Shashti Virathams, Shashti Viratham of 20 November 2020 is the most famous and most celebrated one as six-day long Skanda Sashti fasting is concluded on the day.
