What Is Chaughadia?


‘Choghadia’ is a Sanskrit term comprising 2 Sanskrit words in it - ‘Cho’ + ‘Ghadia’. ‘Cho’ means 4 and ‘Ghadia’ means a moment. Ghadia is mainly known as Ghati. Therefore, Chaughadia means 4 Ghati. The ancient Indian system of time is different from the present international system. It is consisted of Ghati instead of hours. If we compare both the systems, 60 Ghatis are equivalent to 24 hours. Second difference is that the modern system starts a day at 12am and closes at the next 12am; whereas, the ancient Indian system starts a day from the sunrise and closes it with the next day’s sunrise. Now, let’s go in detail.

Basically, each Chaughadiya is consisted of 3.75 Ghati, which is approximately 4 Ghati. Hence, if we calculate the total Chaughadiya in a day, they are 16 in number.
