How To Calculate The Hora ?

The Hora starts when the sun rises. For an example, if on Sunday when sun rises at 6.00 a.m. it is called Surya Hora and it will last for one hour and that is 6.00 a.m. to 7.00 a.m. The 24 hours in a day are controlled by the 7 planets (as mentioned below) by taking their turns. For instance :

  • On a Sunday = 6.00 a.m. – 7.00 a.m. is Surya Hora, 7.00 a.m. – 8.00 a.m. is Shukra Hora, 8.00 a.m. – 9.00 a.m. is Budha Hora
  • On a Monday = 6.00 a.m. – 7.00 a.m. is Chandra Hora as Monday is controlled by Lord Chandra
  • On a Tuesday = 6.00 a.m. – 7.00 a.m. is Mangal Hora as Tuesday is controlled by Lord Mangal / Angara / Sevvai
