An auspicious month of Shravan 2020 or Sawan2020  in the Hindu calendar will begin from the next month. The month of Shravan is said to be an extremely favourable time for worshipping Lord Shiva. Every Monday of this month is special and fast is observed by many devotees for Shravani Somwar. But the dates of this observance differ in the Northern and Southern-Central parts of the country. Both the observances fall between the Gregorian calendar months of July-August. In this article, we will tell you the dates of the Shravan and Sawan along with the calendar of Sawan Somwar.

Those in North India refer to the month as Sawan and it begins about 15 days prior to the observance in Southern India called as Shravan. This is because people in North follow the Purnimant calendar and those in South follow Amavasyant calendar. Irrespective of the difference in dates, the essence of worship of Lord Shiva and fasting every Monday is the same. Learn About the Significance of Lord Shiva’s Accessories & Symbols.
