2021 Surya Ponggal Timing

2021-Surya-Ponggal-Timing

Ponggal is a harvest festival observed by Hindus all over the world. With the saying 'Thai Piranthal Vazhi Pirakkum' in mind, we celebrate this festival hoping the birth of Thai month will pave way for new opportunities.

In 2021, this four-day celebration will fall on the following dates:
 

Boghi Ponggal: 13th January
Thai Ponggal: 14th January
Maatu Ponggal: 15th January
Kaanum Ponggal: 16th January


During Thai / Surya Ponggal, it's customary to cook ponggal (a mixture of rice and milk) during sunrise or sunset and offer the dish to Surya Bagavan (God of Sun). According to the Malaysia Hindu Sangam president RS Mohan Shan, the auspicious time to conduct the prayer starts from 9.00am to 10.20am (Malaysian time) this year.

Those who were unable to conduct the prayers in the morning, can do so at the next auspicious time from 11.55am to 1.20pm (Malaysian time).

Even though the sunrise in Kuala Lumpur on this day will be at 7.26am, but the people are advised against making ponggal between that time and 8.55am as it is regarded as an inauspicious time, also known as Yamagandam.

May this Ponggal bring luck and prosperity to your home. Happy Ponggal!
