Rakshabandhan 2019: What Is Rakshabandhan?

Rakshabandhan is a traditional Hindu festival, which celebrates the relationship between brothers and sisters. It has been celebrated for centuries and there are many stories related to the importance of Rakshabandhan and how it started. Commonly known as Rakhi, Indians celebrate the bond between brothers and sisters with a unique thread or mouli tying ceremony. Rakshabandhan falls on the last day of the Hindu lunar calendar (full moon day) of Shraavana, which usually falls in the month of August.

This year the last day of Shraavana is on 15th August 2019, which is also the Independence day. This year will be a dual celebration of Independence day along with Rakshabandhan across millions of homes in India. The auspicious time to tie Rakhi is from 05:53 till 17:58.
