            // creating and initializing
            // HijrahDate Object
            HijrahDate hidate = HijrahDate.now();
 
            // getting chronology of this date
            // by using getChronology() method
            HijrahEra crono = hidate.getEra();
 
            // display the result
            System.out.println("HijrahEra: "
                               + crono);
        }
        catch (DateTimeException e) {
