Buddha Jayanti


In contrast to other adjoining cities that marks up as her neighbors, Patan has been densely inhabited by the Shaykas and the Bajracharyas, all of whom have Buddhism as their principle religion, as unlike in Kathmandu and Bhaktapur. This has seen to Patan celebrating, rather on a very grand scale, the birth celebration of Buddha, the initiator of Buddhism.

It is equally celebrated by the Hindus and marks as excellent example of religious tolerance in whole of the Valley and also in the whole World. This day is marked by thousands of Buddhists together with their Hindu brothers by paying homage to the Buddha’s name.
