Nepali calendar is based on Bikram Sambat, founded by the emperor Vikramaditya roughly around 56 BCE. Unlike Gregorian Calendar, which is based on the solar cycle, Bikram Sambat is based on lunar cycle. In Nepal, the calendar begins in the mid-April and marks the start of the solar new year. Bikram Sambat is approximately 56.7 years ahead of the Gregorian calendar. Besides Nepal, Bikram Sambat is also used as official calendar in some part of India, Bangladesh and Thailand among others.
