Kalashtami 2018 dates based on Hindu Panchang and Calendar. Kalashtami, also known as Kala Bhairav Ashtami, is observed on the eighth day after full moon or purnima in traditional Hindu lunar calendar. Kalashtami is dedicated to Lord Shiva. Below are the Kalashtami days in 2018. It is his Kal Bhairava form that is worshipped on the day. The most important Kalbhirav Jayanti, or Mahakaal Bhairavashtami, is observed in Margashirsha month (November - December) in traditional Hindu calendar – the day Kala Bhairav appeared on earth.
