Panchang is a Vedic Hindu calendar. Showing
Dina, Nakshtra, Tithi, Yoga, Karana for
everyday, with automatic adjustment for any city in the world.
As per Vaastu Shastra it is advisable

There are seven types of
choghadiya's. Each day is divided into two time periods: daytime -
the period from sunrise to sunset - and night-time - the period from
sunset to sunrise. Each period contains eight Choghadiya's. To
calculate the duration of each Choghadiyu, divide the respective
time periods by eight. Thus, in each period any one of the seven
different types of Choghadiya's will occur twice.
Day 1: Sunrise at 6:39AM and Sunset at 6:25 pm
Day 2: Sunrise at 6:41 am
The daytime period is 11 hours and 46 minutes (706 minutes).
The night-time period is 12 hours and 16 minutes (736 minutes).
Therefore, each daytime Choghadiyu lasts 706/8 = 88.25 minutes = 1
hour 28 minutes 15 seconds.
And each night-time Choghadiyu last 736/8 = 92 minutes = 1 hour 32
To determine a good time to commence important works, check
the time period between which such work can be initiated and select
a favorable Choghadiyu within that specified time period.
