Southern Solstice or Dakshinayana

Today Sun entered Zero Degree Sidereal Cancer, Nirayana Kataka, thus initiating the Southern Solstice or Dakshinayana.

Amongst the two Solstices, Southern is considered medium and Northern highly auspicious.

Ayane Uttare Sreshta Madhyamam Dakshinayanam.

According to Electional Astrology, installation of the Idol or Prathishta in temples are done during Uttarayana.
