KATHMANDU, April 3: Bajrayogini Jatra at Sankhu is celebrated every year in the month of April (Chaitra/Baishak) for eight-long days where the idols of the Gods from the Bajrayogini temple are brought down to the town and carried around the entire town.

Priests accompany the idols of the two big idols Mhasukhwamaju (yellow-faced goddess) and Chibadya (the chaitya/stupa shaped idol – husband of Mhasukhwamaju) while two small idols of their children Singli (lioness) and Byangli (tigress) are carried in smaller chariots by the children of the community.

Culturally, Sankhu is famous for two events; the Salinadi Mela and the Bajrayogini Jatra festival.

Here are some glimpses of the event captured during the occasion:
