Amavasya is the new moon night according to Hindu calendar. Hindu calendar is based on lunar calendar. In most part of India, Hindu calendar month starts on the day after the new moon or Amavasya. Amavasya is the last day of Krishna Paksha (dark fortnight), according to Hindu calendar. Amavas falls on every Hindu month. In the night of Amavasya the moon doesn’t appear. Most people fast on Amavas. If, Amavasya falls on Monday than it is known as Somvati Amavasya on the other hand if any month Amavasya falls on Saturday than it is called Shani Amavasya.

Generally, all Amavasya days are appropriately good to perform Shraddha pujan or Tarpanam. Amavasya is also very important day to perform Kalasarpa Dosha puja.
