Sindure Jatra Nuwakot
Sindure Jatra

Located just 75km from Kathmandu is Nuwakot, a central settlement in Nepal. Sindure Jatra is one of the main festivals in Nuwakot, which marks the arrival of Spring Season and the Nepali New Year. This Jatra is celebrated by the Newar community at the Nuwakot Durbar Vicinity.

To being this festive procession, devotees carry a wooden chariot with 32 palanquins called Khats with different images of Goddess Bhairabi. To mark the festival beginning, devotees smear each other with Sindure (vermillion powder) while singing and dancing to the tunes.

The Living God aka Dhami, offers goats and buffaloes as sacrifice to the Goddess Bhairabi. Following this, a huge mass of devotees pray and offer animals to the Gods in the premises of the Bhairabi Temple. As part of the ritual, the Dhami must suck the blood of the livestock three times and then pray to the Goddess Bhairabi.. Crowds swarm from different regions to witness this festival. At the end of the festival, a special Puja is then performed at the temple, where devotees worship and pray to God Bhairabi, for protection from all evils of the world.
