Gudi Padwa, the Hindu New Year Day known by different names, will be celebrated on April 13.

The festival falls on the first day of the Hindu month of Chaitra which coincides with March or April in the Gregorian calendar. It is one of the most important festivals for Maharashtrians as it marks the traditional New Year for Maharashtrians.


Gudi Padwa is celebrated by hoisting gudi, preparing delicious food and buying gold jewellery.


According to mythology, it is the day when Lord Brahma created the Universe and hence is one of the most auspicious days of the year. While for some people it is the day when Lord Rama was coroneted in Ayodhya after his victory over Ravana.
