Hsia CalendarTen Thousand Year Calendar

The Hsia Calender, or Xia Calendar, was first introduced in AD 102 to help farmers plan and schedule the growing and harvesting of crops more efficiently. It was thus also known during those times as the Farmer’s Calendar.

It’s Chinese name is Xia Li (夏历). It is also known as the Ten Thousand Year Calendar (万年历), the Solar Calendar, and sometimes even as the Lunisolar Calendar.

Because of the accuracy of predicting the movement of energy forces, in the form of heavenly stems and earthly branches, it is used extensively in the practice of feng shui and date selection.

The Hsia Calender published on this website corresponds to the western Gregorian dates and times to help users identify Gregorian dates from Hsia Calendar dates.
