Pradosham is an auspicious day associated with Shiva and Parvati. March 2016 Pradosham dates are March 6 (Sunday) and March 20 (Sunday). Pradosham occurs twice in a Hindu month – once each during the waning (Krishna Paksha) and waxing phase (Shukla Paksha) of the moon.

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