Details

This festival is commonly celebrated by people living in Terai. In recent year this festival has been celebrated in the other parts of the country. Men and women prepare special dishes made up of special rice and molasses and taste them after an audience to the sun. They take a dip in sacred rivers, ponds, lakes etc.

During the four-day-festival, the devotees worship the rising and setting sun. They have a belief that worshipping the sun will bring prosperity and happiness to their family members.

Local people say that the festival has become more important after migrants from the hills also adopted it as their own cultural asset.
