Moon Rise Time Today in India: Karva Chauth
The moon rise time today in India is special because it is Karwa Chauth, which is when married women fast all day for the health and wellbeing of their husbands and can only break their fast after the moon rises.
Karwa Chauth is a Hindi and Barelvi festival and women must go all day without food or water for the sake of their husbands so that the wife can show their love and devotion for their health.
They must start their fast at night just after the moon rises and within sight of their husbands - they cannot break their fast until the next night's moon. They then dress in their best clothing and wear jewellery and henna and offer prayers and worship to the moon.
The cities and the moon rise times are below:
Delhi 19:55 p.m
Mumbai 20:34 p.m
Kolkotta 19:22 p.m
Chennai 20:15 p.m
