Please note that there is no universally accepted formula to compute the auspicious Muhuratham for rituals like marriage. There is difference of opinion among jyothisha scholors on some of the elements while selecting auspicious dates for marriage or any other important ritual.

Please note that we lists all available marriage muhurathaams in year 2016 by doing Nakshatra, Yoga and Karana Shuddhi for all days in the year after considering auspicious Solar and Lunar months.

It is to be noted that marriage rituals should not be performed while Shukra and Guru Tara are Asta according to Jyothisha scriptures like Muhurta Chintamani and Dharmasindhu. Hence Panchang Shuddhi for auspicious marriage dates is done after removing days when Shukra and Guru Tara are set or combusted. All days during Leaped Lunar month are also removed during Panchangam Shuddhi.

We only list those Muhuratams which are at least 4 hours in duration. Muhuratams which prevail for less than 4 hours are not included.
