Baisakhi 2024 Date - 13th April, Saturday

Baisakhi festival holds a great significance for the Sikh community as the Tenth Guru founded the Khalsa Community on this holy day. Nagar Kirtans and processions are organised in which Guru Granth Sahib hymns are being told, where large number of people take part.

Vaisakhi marks the beginning of the new spring year and the end of the harvest of rabi crop. Farmers in Punjab and Haryana thank God for the harvest and pray for prosperity in the coming years. People wake up early on this day and take a dip in the holy rivers.

A major astrological significance of Baisakhi is that it marks the sun’s entry into Mesh Rashi. Thus Baisakhi is also known as Mesha Sankranti. Baisakhi is celebrated as 'Rongali Bihu' in Assam, 'Naba Barsha' in Bengal, ‘Puthandu’ in Tamil Nadu, 'Pooram Vishu' in Kerala and ‘Vaishakha’ in Bihar.
