# Get Time Zone of a Given Location using Python

• Last Updated : 29 Nov, 2021

In this article, we are going to see how to get the time zone from a given location. The Timezonefinder module is able to find the timezone of any point on earth (coordinates) offline. Before starting we need to install this module.

### Modules Needed

1. timezonefinder: This module does not built in with Python. To install this type the below command in the terminal.
`pip install timezonefinder`
•  Geopy: .geopy makes it easy for Python developers to locate the coordinates of addresses, cities, countries, and landmarks across the world. To install the Geopy module, run the following command in your terminal.
`pip install geopy`

Let’s understand this module with Step by step:

Step 1: import TimezoneFinder module

## Python3

 `from` `timezonefinder ``import` `TimezoneFinder`

Step 2:  make an object of TimezoneFinder.

## Python3

 `# object creation``obj ``=` `TimezoneFinder()`

Step 3: Pass the latitude and longitude in a timezone_at() method and it return the time zone of a given location.

## Python3

 `# pass the longitude and latitude``# in timezone_at and``# it return time zone``latitude ``=` `25.6093239``longitude ``=` `85.1235252``obj.timezone_at(lng``=``latitude, lat``=``longitude)`

Output:

`'Asia/Kolkata'`

Now let write a script to get timezone with a specific location.

Approach:

• Import the module
• Initialize Nominatim API to get location from the input string.
• Get  latitude and longitude with geolocator.geocode() function.
• Pass the latitude and longitude in a timezone_at() method and it returns the time zone of a given location.

Code:

## Python3

 `# importing module``from` `geopy.geocoders ``import` `Nominatim``from` `timezonefinder ``import` `TimezoneFinder` `# initialize Nominatim API``geolocator ``=` `Nominatim(user_agent``=``"geoapiExercises"``)` `# input as a geek``lad ``=` `"Dhaka"``print``(``"Location address:"``, lad)` `# getting Latitude and Longitude``location ``=` `geolocator.geocode(lad)` `print``(``"Latitude and Longitude of the said address:"``)``print``((location.latitude, location.longitude))` `# pass the Latitude and Longitude``# into a timezone_at``# and it return timezone``obj ``=` `TimezoneFinder()` `# returns 'Europe/Berlin'``result ``=` `obj.timezone_at(lng``=``location.longitude, lat``=``location.latitude)``print``(``"Time Zone : "``, result)`

Output:

```Location address: Dhaka
Latitude and Longitude of the said address:
(23.810651, 90.4126466)
Time Zone :  Asia/Dhaka```
