shrii ve.nkaTesha suprabhaatam

translation by Dr. K. Sethu Rameswara Datta

kausalyaasuprajaaraama puurvaa sandhyaa pravartate |
uttiShTa narashaarduula kartavya.m daivamaahnikam || 1 ||

O Raama, Kausalya's auspicious child! Twilight is appearing in the East. O
best of men (i.e., Purushottama)! Wake up, the divine daily rituals have to
be performed.

     In the above translation,  "purva sandhya" is referred to as "twilight".
Isn't this actually  "dawn", since we are referring to the period prior or right
before sunrise, and not after sunset.
Thought I will share this..
