Please find below the dates of Sankashti Chaturthi (संकष्टी चतुर्थी) in the calendar year 2015. Tamil Hindus call this day as Sankatahara Chaturthi.
When Sankashti Chaturthi falls on Tuesday it is known as Angaraki Chaturthi (अंगारिका चतुर्थी), which is considered highly auspicious.
Many devotees of Lord Ganesha observe a fast on Sankashti Chaturthi / Angarika Chaturthi for the entire day which is broken after taking darshan of Moon followed by worshiping of Lord Ganesha.
In 2015 there is only one Angarika Chaturthi, as against three Angarika Chaturthi’s in both 2013 and 2014.
