Observe Indra Jatra at September

According to traditional beliefs, Indra had received this flag from Lord Vishnu for protection. Finally, the Kumari (living goddess), leaves the seclusion of her temple in a palanquin and leads a procession through the streets of Kathmandu to thank Indra the rain god. The main attraction of the festival is the procession of chariots and masked dancers representing deities and demons. Indra is called Yanya in Newari. Jaad (Nepali local liquor) flows from the Bahirab statue, which is remarkable to look at in Hanuman Dhoka. The procession consists of: • Majipa Lakhey • Pulukishi • Sawan Bhaku • Ganesh (Chariot) • Kumar (Chariot) • Kumari (Chariot) Besides these, there are various dances held on the open stages of the city called dabu. There is display of Swet Bhairava as well as various deities of the city.
