Description:
The Nepal Sambat (Nepal Era), which was started by Shankhadhar Shakhwaa entered its 1129th with the Newar community from all over the country eager to mark the new year with different festivities and cultural programmes. The Nepal Sambat follows the lunar calendar. Shakwaa had freed the Nepali people from their debts contributing the money from his own pocket and had named the calendar ‘Nepal Sambat’. The lunar calendar is followed for all cultural events and rituals.

I took this photograph on Nhudaya Vintuna rally. There is lots of kid’s participation wearing cultural dresses and enjoying with friends and siblings
