Choghadiya (चौघड़िया) is an Indian astrology based muhurat or auspicious time guide. Choghadiya divides day and night into 8 equal periods starting from sunrise to sunset for day choghadiya and sunset to sunrise next day for night choghadiya. In vedic astrology calculations, time is calculated in 'Ghadi'. Each ghadi is equvalent to 24 minutes. The word Choughadiya is derived from the hindi words "Chaw - चौ" meaning 'consisting of four' and 'ghadi' as each choghadiya is roughly 96 minutes duration.
