Monthly Shivratri Dates in 2017 – Shivaratri Days in a Month for Shivratri Vrat in 2017

Masa Shivaratri, or Mas Shivratri, falls on the Krishna Paksha Chaturdasi of each traditional Hindu lunar month. Below are the monthly dates of Shivratri in 2016. ‘Krishna Paksha’ is the dark fortnight of a lunar month. It is the 14th day after full moon (Purnima) or more easy calculation one or one day before Amavasi. Shiva devotees observe the day with vrat, special prayers and pujas. Some devotees also keep vigil all night as in Mahashivratri.

(Please note that in some regions Masa Shivaratri might start a day early and overlap into the next day).
