Kaliyug, the Age of Kali, is one of the four stages of life in the cycle of Yugas. Hindus believe that the world travels through these four stages, changing the consciousness of mankind gradually.

It is a dark age, in which civilisation degenerates.  It is expected to last 432,000 years, and we're currently living through it.
