Pradosham January 2023 Dates – Shiva Pradosh Vrat dates in January 2023

Pradosham, also known as Pradosh Vrat, is an auspicious day associated with Shiva and Parvati. January 2023 Pradosham dates are January 4 and January 18. Pradosham occurs twice in a Hindu month – once each during the waning (Krishna Paksha) and waxing phase (Shukla Paksha) of the moon.

The Pradosham period is in the evening from 1.5 hours before sunset and 1 hour after sunset. The fast which began at sunrise is broken during the period.

Most devotees make it a point to be present at a Shiva temple or offer prayers at home.

It is believed that offering observing Pradosh vrat and offering prayers at the Pradosham period on the day will help in having desires fulfilled.
