This year's Akshaya Tritiya was celebrated on May 8, 2008. We also have a reminder post for the same over here. The Akshaya Tritiya is a very holy day and it is considered that we need not also check for Muhurta times on this day since the entire day is holy. There is normally two things which are done:
- Purchase of new things on this day
- Starting up of new ventures
As it was also Thursday, I had a quick temple trip to Triplicane too.
