Bisket Jatra

posted on 26th of may, 2012

'Bisket Jatra' observed in 'Thimi', an ancient Newari town lying 10 kilometres east from Kathmandu, is one of the most spectacular festivals. 'Bisket Jatra' observed in Thimi is also called Sindoor Jatra(Vermilion Powder Festival) is absolutely different than observed in proper Bhaktapur. The day marks the begining of Nepali New Year. People greet each other and play with Vermilion color. In no time the whole locality turn into colorful orange. Bisket Jatra has been regarded as the best festival of the world by lonelyplanet.com.
