Akshaya Trutiya the day when Tretayug (the second era of existence) commenced. Hindu Scriptures (Dharmashaastra) attach great importance to the day when one Yug (era) ends and another Yug commences. This day marks the end of bad times (kalaha-kaal) of the earlier Yug and the beginning of good times (Satyayug) of the next Yug. Although this transition is only momentary, the whole day is considered to be auspicious, since the effect of the transition lasts for twenty four hours. Hence this day is considered as an auspicious day (muhurta). On this very day, God Hayagriv, God Narayan as well as God Parshuram descended on Earth. This helps us in understanding the importance of this day.
