Nakshatra (Sanskrit: नक्षत्र, IAST: Nakṣatra) is the term for lunar mansion in Hindu astrology. A nakshatra is one of 27 (or 28) sectors along the ecliptic. Their names are related to the most prominent asterisms. n classical Hindu mythology (Mahabharata, Harivamsa), the creation of the nakshatras is attributed to Daksha. They are personified as daughters of Daksa prajapati and as mythological wives of Chandra, the Moon god, since the Moon covers one nakshatra per day.
