Nav Varsh Abhinandan

Chaitra Shukla 1, Vikram Samvat 2067.
Nav Varsh ki hardik shubhkamnayein!

Vikram Samvat is the calendar established by the Indian emperor of Ujjain Vikramaditya. It is the most popularly used calendar in India and official calendar of Nepal & Bangladesh.

Vikramaditya founded Vikram Samvat to commemorate his victory over Sakas in 56 BC. It is a lunar calendar based on ancient Indian tradition. Vikram Samvat calendar is 56 years older than the solar Gregorian Calendar and is one of the examples which confirm that Indian civilization is older than any other civilzation on this earth.
