Based on the Hindu calendar, Pitru Paksha is a 16-day lengthy interval when Hindus pay homage to their ancestors, principally by means of meals choices. The interval begins from Pratipada (the primary day) of the month of Ashwin and ends with the no moon day often called Sarvapitri Amavasya or Mahalaya.
