Bikram Sambat 2053 (1996/1997 A.D.)

Author:

Bikram Sambat 2053

Nepal follows a different calendar system than in the West. According
to this system, 1996-97 is Bikram Sambat 2053. The New Year begins in
mid-April. Like the Julian system, there are 12 months, each month
beginning around the middle of a Western month. Festival dates
are, however, determined by lunar calendar.

Here’s the full Nepali calendar for B.S.2053. English dates are in
brackets. You can move to a specific month by either scrolling down or
by choosing the month:
