Gai Jatra being marked across the nation, commemorating the deceased family members.

Gai Jatra is being celebrated across the country, arranging various programs. The day is marked to remember the deceased family members in a year.


The celebration of Gai Jatra is started by King Pratap Malla on the death of his son and to console his wife. The flocks of cows are marched in the streets by the bereaved families. They send their children or any members so that they can roam the valley in the memories of the deceased souls.


It is also believed that the entrance of Mrityu Log is closed for the year and it will be opened on the day when Gai Jatra is celebrated. The departed souls will be liberated after the day is celebrated as mentioned in Garud Purana. Various events are also organized to mock and satire on the existing follies of the societies.Photo and Video by Amrit Baniya(DCnepal.com)
