Details

Dashain is the longest and most favorite festival of Nepal.  Skies of Kathmandu filled with kites. Big swings are set on the grounds for children and grownups alike. Animals like buffaloes, goats, ducks and chickens are sacrificed to the goddess Durga on Kal Ratri (the dark night) to celebrate her victory over evil. Following day, on Nawami, people clean their vehicles and sacrifice animals or eggs for safe journey throughout the year.

The next day, on Dashami (Tika), people dress up well and visit elders to receive large red  tikas of vermilion paste on their foreheads. In the following days of Dashain, families and friends unite, feasts are consumed, blessings are imparted and gifts are exchanged.
