The Zero Shadow Day in Bengaluru will occur at precisely 12:17 pm, where none of the standing objects from the city will cast any shadow for a short period of time. According to the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) website, this phenomenon happens when the sun’s declination is equal to the latitude of the location, twice a year during Uttarayan and Dakshinayan.

The Indian Institute of Astrophysics at Kormangala, Bengaluru, is set to host several events to mark this historic day. The ASI website notes that the Zero Shadow Day was last observed in Bhubaneswar, Odisha in 2021.
