Our temple is observing Akshaya Tritiya on Friday, April 28th 2017.

Akshaya Tritiya, also known as Akha Teej, is highly auspicious and happens during Shukla Paksha Tritiya on the month of Vaishakha.  It is also considered very auspicious if this day falls in conjunction with Rohini Nakshatra. The word, Akshaya, means never diminishing. Hence the benefits of doing any Japa, Yajna, Pitra-Tarpan, Dan-Punya on this day never diminish and remain with the person forever.

Akshaya Tritiya is believed to bring good luck and success. Most people purchase gold on this day as it is believed that buying gold on Akshaya Tritiya brings prosperity and more wealth in the coming future.

The day is considered auspicious for starting new ventures: any venture initiated on the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya is assumed to grow and bring prosperity. Hence, new ventures such as starting a business, construction, etc. is performed on Akshaya Tritiya.
