Gold shines brighter on Akshaya Tritiya

Akshaya Tritiya is one of the most auspicious occasions in Hindu religion. The word Akshaya means ‘Eternal’ and Akshaya Tritiya is thus considered an auspicious day for, among other things, starting a business, buying a property or making an investment. Buying gold on Akshaya Tritiya is believed to bring good fortune and prosperity. On the day itself, there is even a specific time period which is seen as auspicious for buying gold – the shubh muhurat.
