Rahu Kaal refers to the bad time or inauspicious time on every day which is not considered favourable to start any new activity. As per Hindu astrology, Rahu Kaal covers a span of about 90 minutes every day in between sunrise and sunset.
RAHU KAAL IS NOT AN AUSPICIOUS TIME
Rahu Kaal is given utmost importance. While looking for Muhurats, this period is strictly avoided. As per popular belief, auspicious works done during this time will never give good results. People do not commence new ventures, marriage proposals, journeys, trades, interviews, trades, business deals, sale or purchase of assets, and any other important ventures during this period.
