Sandhyansa or Samdhyansa is a Sanskrit word derived from 'sandhya' meaning a transition period, twilight or dawn and 'ansa' means part.
Sandhyansa is a part of the transition period, the period of a Sandhya immediately following or preceding a yuga, and thus either a twilight or dawn. The Puranas
mentions that sandhyansa is the last portion of a sandhi, the end of twilight. But this takes only one of the two main junction periods as standing for both, because the end of dawn would be a 'sandhyansa' too.
