Project Detail

Biska Jatra or Bisket Jatra is an annual event in Madhyapur Thimi, Bhaktapur, Dhapasi Tokha and other places in Nepal. The festival is celebrated at the start of the new year on the Bikram Sambat calendar, however, the festival itself is not related to Bikram Sambat.

Balkumari Thimi hosts a color festival (Sindur Jatra). Folks from various parts of Madhyapur Thimi gather, carrying their own chariots in Layeku Thimi. People celebrate and share greetings, throwing simrik color powder and playing Dhimay music.

Bode witnesses a tongue-piercing ceremony. One resident spends the whole day with an iron spike piercing his tongue and roams the city by carrying multiple firey torches on his shoulder. Juju Bhai Shrestha is the most renowned tongue piercer town.

Main Objective is to Save our traditional Culture and values by reflecting our culture through photography.
