According to vedic astrology, starting from sunrise to sunset every hour has its own importance and specialities, some with positive effect and others with negative effect. When you consult an astrologer, trying to find a good time or shubh muhurat to start something new or do something auspicious, he refers the Hora chart to determine the celestial bodies ruling each hour before finalising the most appropriate time.

The word Hora (होरा) is believed to have come from the word Ahorätra, which means “day and night”. Tamil word corresponding to hora is Horai or Orrai (ஹோரை or ஓரை) and is considered an important aspect of Tamil Panchangam. Each hora is ruled by one the first seven of the nine lords. Based on the characteristics of the ruling planet, a particular hour of a particular day could be auspicious or inauspicious.
