Indra Jatra (Yanya Punhi) is also popular as the festival of Classical Dances. The main attraction of this festival is the procession of chariots and masked dance representing various deities and demons. The procession consists of Majipa Lakhey, Pulukishi, Sawan Bhaku, Ganesh chariot, Kumar chariot and Kumari chariot. The festival of Indra Jatra continues for eight days with much rejoicing, singing, dancing and feasting.
