There are 3 major tools available on AstroSage that will help you find out the Muhurata.


Hora is the particular duration of time assigned to a planet in a day. The term ‘Hour’ has been derived from Hora. Hora is typically the duration of 1 hour that is 60 minutes. Among the 9 planets of astrology, Rahu and Ketu are virtual (shadowy planets). Hence, we are left with 7 planets - Sun, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Moon. These planets are given an hour everyday. If you wish to know the Hora (time period) of these 7 planets of a day, please click here - Hora of The Day


Choghadiya is a Sanskrit term consisting of 2 terms - Cho + Ghadi. ‘Cho’ means ‘four’ and ‘Ghadi’ (aka Ghati) is the Indian value of time that is used in place of hour. The 24 hours are equivalent to 60 Ghati. Each Choghadiya is consisted of 3.75 Ghati, which is approximately 4 Ghati; hence the term Choghadiya got its name. 

Now, we can say that a day is consisted of 16 Choghadiya, which is equivalent to 60 Ghati or 24 Hours. As per Indian traditional system, a day begins with the sunrise and ends with the sunrise of the next day. 

Now, there are 7 names for Choghadiya - Amrut, Shoobh, Labh, Chal, Udveg, Kaal and Rog. Out of 16 Choghadiya, each one is given a name. As there are 16 Choghadiya in a day, 7 names are distributed as per the quality of that particular Choghadiya. The names are classified as follows:

  1. Auspicious Choghadiya - Amrut, Shoobh & Labh
  2. Moderate Choghadiya - Chal
  3. Inauspicious Choghadiya - Udveg, Kaal & Rog

Hence, you may easily find out, which Choghadiya is auspicious for you to begin your task.

The Choghadiya that comes in the first half that is Sunrise to Sunset is considered as Day Choghadiya. On the contrary, the Choghadiya under other half (Sunset to Sunrise) are Night Choghadiya. Check the Choghadiya of the day here - Choghadiya of The Day

Rahukaal, as the name suggests, is the time duration dedicated to the planet Rahu. Yes, it may sound contradicting to Hora. But this virtual planet somehow takes it’s time in the day. This particular duration of time is considered inauspicious. Hence, anything should be avoided during this time. Click here to find out the most inauspicious time of the day - Rahukalam Calculator
