Magha (month)

Maagha (Hindi: माघ maagh) is a month of the Hindu calendar. In India's national civil calendar, it's the eleventh month of the year, corresponding to January/February in the Gregorian calendar.[1]

In lunar calendars, Maagh may begin on either the new moon or the full moon around the same time of year, and is usually the tenth month of the year. It is named thus because, in this month, the full moon is usually found nearby or within the star cluster called "Magha".

In solar calendars, Maagh begins with the Sun's entry into Capricorn, and is usually the eleventh month of the year.
