Is there any inbuilt functionality in episerver to format the dates according to culture? e.g. 3rd of May (English), 3 de enero (Spanish) etc. Thank you.

Nope. Use standard .NET string.Format for that. Since the current thread will be set to the same culture as the current page it will work great. 

If you have a property with date, use the standard Html.PropertyFor() to render it. If you are unhappy with the format, add a new display template and matching UIHint on property to make a custom display template (using the .NET string.Format() to output the date in the display template)
