Yuga was a five-year Vedic calendar. The duration of a Yuga and a Chaturyuga were increased from 5 years to 1200 years and from 20 years to 4800 years respectively. Later, the duration of a Chaturyuga was again increased from 4800 years to 12000 years and from 12000 years to 4320000 years with the objective of achieving accurate calendrical calculations.
