👉🏻 It was named Chaitra because of the full moon having Chitra Nakshatra (Chitra Nakshatrayukta Pournmasi Yatra Sah).
➡ This year Chaitra will start on 08 March 2023 (according to North India Hindu Panchang) and according to Gujarat and Maharashtra, Chaitra month will start from 22 March. Chaitra month is known as Madhu month.
