The Kara-Tur calendar was the calendar by which the civilized lands of Kara-Tur measured the months of the year.[1]

It was devised by one of the emperors of Shou Lung.[1]

Oriental Adventures, page 107, says that the first day of the year coincided with some time in modern-day February or March. These correspond to the months of Alturiak and Ches in Faerûn's Calendar of Harptos.
