The significance of Sankashti Chaturthi

According to the Hindu calendar, every lunar month has two chaturthi tithis. One is after the full moon which falls during Krishna Paksha which is also known as Sakashti Chaturthi. The second Chaturthi falls on the new moon day during the Shukla Paksha which is known as Vinayaka Chaturthi.

If Sankashti Chaturthi falls on a Tuesday, it is celebrated as Angarki Chaturthi. Angarki Chaturthi is considered to be very auspicious and holy according to the Hindu mythology. Fasts are also observed on Sankashti Chaturthi mostly in the northern and western regions of India.
