Welcome to Gurla Mandata

Indra Jatra Festival Tour

Indra Jatra Festival Tour:This festival falls on the fourteenth day of the bright moon fortnight of September but it starts on the twelfth day of the bright fortnight; then all together it lasts for eight day. The main day of the festival  believed to be the fourteenth day of the fortnight. On the twelfth day of the September bright fortnight a thirty-two feet’s long pole erected at the Hanuman Dhoka palace in Basantapur. This pole has been brought always traditionally from the forest of Bhaktapur. After adjusting the long pole Lord Indra’s idol is worshipped. The lord’s idol keeps tying around by the threads. There’s an interesting anecdote regarding to this tying Indra.

historical background

Once Lord Indra’s mother was on her religious worshipping program and she was in need of a flower called Parijat. His mother then sent him to search the flower; then lord Indra went in search of that flower; and finally he saw that flower there in the garden of Hanuman Dhoka. He then thought of stealing the flower; and went to steal the flower. Suddenly a soothsayer Baidhya saw him and captivated him there and he was released only after eight day when his mother came there to request the soothsayer. So this festival lasts for eight days.

The lord’s idol resided at the certain Guthiyar’s house and brought only once in a year when the festival starts. The fair starts only when lord Indra is worshipped there highly in a traditional manner. Many people crowd there to look the starting day of the festival. Since that day the Hanuman Dhoka palace looks very unusual; until the ending of the fete different kinds of mask dances from different parts of the valley are demonstrated.

My country Nepal

My country Nepal is surrounding by two countries ,China lies in the east side and west, north and south is cover by India. It is in the northern hemisphere. It has three geographical zones. Himalayan, Mountainous and tarai. We have monsoon climate. It is very cold and dry in winter and hot, stormy and rainy in summer. It is rich in natural beauty and resources. It has long and wide rivers like koshi, Gandaki, and Karnali.We have large lakes like Rupa, Begnas, and Rara etc.Like-wise we have green valleys, lovely water falls etc. It is rich in religious and historical heritages.Lumbini, Gorkha, Janakpur, Kathmandu are the famous examples.

Nepal is a country of highly diverse and rich geography, culture, and religions. The mountainous north has eight of the world’s ten highest mountains, including the highest, Sagarmatha, known in English as Mount Everest. The fertile and humid south is heavily urbanized. It contains over 240 peaks more than 20,000 ft. (6,096 m) above sea.

People of many    castes and religions leave here. About hundred languages are spoken. Our popular foods are dal bhat, dhindo, gundurk etc. dashain, tihar,losar,Id etc. are the most popular festivals. They observe these festivals very happily.Most people are farmers. They grow rice, corn, wheat,millet,barley,potato etc. some people in the cities are businessmen. Some have industries. They are very laborious and polite.

Due to the reach in natural resources, tourists love to visit your country. They can see endangered birds and animals here. They can see natural beauty, too So tourism is our potential industry.

Nepal is small but rich in natural resources although it is poor by economic condition. Nepal is developing country. To develop soon, from today we have to aware all of the citizenship of country. Give to education equally both men and women, government should have to bring advance program and help citizen. And by providing different facilities which gives benefit to both citizen and government.

Nepal is a beautiful country. So we have to publish it all over the world which directly or indirectly helps to attract tourist and we can control our economic condition. Success is achieved by developing our strengths, not by eliminating our weaknesses.
