    It's not a natural sentence I'm afraid.

    Perhaps you mean

    'There are many reasons to regret that there are only 24 hours in a day'.

    Or perhaps

    'There are many reasons to wonder why there are only 24 hours in a day'.

    Neither is a question, so a full stop is correct.

    Please note:
