Nepali Date And Time – Nepali Calendar 2078

August 17, 2021

How do we say Nepali date and time in the Nepali language? A year is वर्ष (Barsha), a month is महिना (Mahina), a week is known as हप्ता (Hapta), and Day as in 'Wednesday' is called बुधवार (Budhavāra). Also, a day is 'दिन' (din).

The Nepalese calendar called Nepali Patro is a Bikram Sambat calendar. It is believed that Bikram Sambat, abbreviated as B.S., was initiated by King Vikramaditya. The current year of Bikram Sambat is 2078 (Nepali calendar 2078), and next year is the Nepalese calendar 2079 Bikram Sambat. The Nepalese calendar consists of 12 months, with the number of days in a month ranging from 28 to 32.

Bikram Samwat (Bikram Sambat, Devanagari script: बिक्रमसंवत, abbreviated "B.S.") is a calendar established by the Indian emperor Vikramaditya. It is the official calendar of Nepal. In addition to Bikram Sangwat, Nepal also uses the Gregorian, Nivari, and Nepal Sambat calenders.

It is based on the solar calendar of ancient Hindu traditions. The Bikram Sambat calendar is 56.7 years ahead of the solar (Gregorian) calendar (by counting). For instance, the year 2056 starts in AD1999 and ends in A.D. 2000. The calendar begins on the first day of Baisakh (month), which is usually April 13 or 14 of the Gregorian calendars.

The basic conversion formula – Nepali date and time:

Nepali Date to English Date: Subtract – 56 Years – 8 Months – 17 Days

English Date to Nepali: Add – 56 Years – 8 Months – 17 Days

Nepali Months - Nepali Date And Time

Nepal Sambat has a lunar-solar calendar, with 354 days in a typical year. A leap month named Anālā (अनाला) is added every three years to prevent the calendar from changing with the seasons.

Nepali Date And Time

YYYY-MM-DD is the formal and official date format for the Bikram Sambat calendar used in Nepal. While speaking and writing for record history, for example, the 23rd of Chaitra, 2077 BS can be pronounced and written as Chaitra 23, 2077 (च, २०७७) or 2077 Chaitra 23 (२०७७ च त ). Both YYYY-MM-DD (2021-08-11) and DD/MM/YYYY (08/11/2021) formats can be used when using the Gregorian calendar.

Days In A Week In Nepal?

While the DMY (Jul 11, 2021) format is formatted in full Gregorian format, the MDY (Aug 11, 2021) format is also acceptable. Various documents must be recorded in YYYY-MM-DD format. The week begins on Sunday (आइतबार) and ends on Saturday (शनिबार).

12-hour (8:01 a.m.) notation is widely used in written communication and everyday life and is used in spoken language. The 24-hour (08:01) notation is used only in exceptional cases where there is general uncertainty. Examples include the departure and landing times of planes. The colon is generally used to separate seconds, minutes, and hours (for example, 14:38:15).

Nepali Date And Time



In certain regions and certain denominations, many religious holidays and festivals are celebrated. In the country, holiday dates can vary by year and location as well.

The difference is due to the different calendars used, including three lunar calendars and two solar calendars, and different astronomical calculations from religious authorities. Also, holidays should not be upheld if the religious authorities do not consider that the date does not lead to a particular year.

Some important festivals celebrated by Nepalese are Dashain, Tihar, Teej, Janai Purnima or Raksha Bandhan, Maha Shivratri, Holi (colorful), and Nepali New Year.
