Festival of Nepal.
GAI JATRA गाईजात्रा
☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

Gai Jatra, the festival of cows, is celebrated in Nepal, mainly in Kathmandu valley by the Newar and Tharu community.[1] The festival commemorates the death of people during the year. During the festival, cows are marched in the streets and generally celebrated in the Nepalese month of Bhadra (August–September). It falls on the 1st day of the dark fortnight of Gunla according to the lunar Nepal Era calendar. Peoples also distributes food to others. The festival of cows is one of the most popular festivals of Nepal.

The whole complex of Gai Jatra festival has its roots in the ancient ages when people feared and worshiped Yamaraj, the god of death. However, the ironic sessions synonymous with the Gai Jatra festival entered the tradition in the medieval period of Nepal during the reign of the Malla Kings. Hence, the present form of Gaijatra is a happy blending of antiquity and the medieval era.
According to the traditions since time immemorial, every family who has lost one relative during the past year must participate in a procession through the streets of Kathmandu leading a cow. If a cow is unavailable then a young boy dressed as a cow is considered a fair substitute.
In Hinduism, a cow is regarded as the most venerated among all the domestic animals. It is believed that the cow, revered as a holy animal by Hindus, will help the deceased relative's journey to heaven.

According to the historical evidence, when King Pratap Malla lost his son, his wife, the queen, remained grief-stricken. The king was very sad to see the condition of his beloved queen. The king, in spite of several efforts, could not lessen the grief of his wife. He desperately wanted to see a little smile on the lips of his sweetheart, and so he announced that anyone who made the queen laugh would be rewarded adequately.
During the festival of Gaijatra, the cow procession was brought before the grief-stricken queen. Then the participants began ridiculing and be-fooling the important people of the society. Finally, when the social injustices and other evils were highlighted and attacked mercilessly, the queen could not help but smile. The queen laughed and the king instituted a tradition of including jokes, satire, mockery and lampoon into the GaiJatra celebration.

After the procession is over, in the afternoon, nearly everyone takes part in another age-old tradition in which the participants dress up and wear masks. The occasion is filled with songs and jokes. Mockery and humor of every kind become the order of the day until late evening. Hence, Gaijatra is a healthy festival which enables the people to accept the reality of death and to prepare themselves for life after death. According to Hinduism, "whatever a man does in his life is a preparation leading to a good life after death".

The Kumbheshwor Temple- Patan Banglamukhi
°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°
The Kumbheshwor Temple is said to date from 1391 when it was completed by Jayasthiti Malla, making it the oldest extant temple in Patan .The temple is noted for its fine proportions and elegant woodcarvings. There are numerous statues and sculptures around the courtyard, from the Lichhavis to the Mallas, including a particularly fine Ganesh figure. The temple is, however, dedicated to Lord Shiva, as indicated by the large Nandi (bull), facing the temple inside the main entrance.

The temple platform has two ponds whose water is said to come straight from the holy lake at Gosainkunda, a long trek north of the valley. An annual ritual bath in the Kumbheshwor Temple?s tank is claimed to be as meritorious as making the arduous walk to Gosainkunda.

Thousands of pilgrims visit the temple during the Janai Purnima festival in July and August each year to worship the silver and gold lingam which is set up in the tank while members of the Brahmin and Chhetri castes replace the sacred thread they wear looped over their left shoulder. Jhankris beating drums and wearing colorful headdresses and skirts dance around the temple to complete the dramatic scene.

Taleju Bhawani Temple- Kathmandu Durbar Square

Taleju Bhawani Temple is the Kathmandu Durbar Square’s most magnificent temple stands at its northeastern extremity but is not open to the public every day. Even for Hindus admission is restricted; they can only visit it briefly during the annual Dasain festival.

The temple stands on a 12-stage plinth and reaches more than 35m high, dominating the Durbar Square area. The eighth stage of the plinth forms a wall around the temple, in front of which are 12 miniature temples. Four more miniature temples stand inside the wall, which has four beautifully carved wide gates. If entry to the temple were permitted it could be reached from within the Hanuman Dhoka or from the Singh Dhoka (Lion Gate) facing Durbar Square.

Goddess Taleju Bhawani, a sacred deity who has four heads and ten arms. was originally a goddess from the Simraungar till 1324 AD (1381 Bikram Samvat) and brought to Bhaktapur after destruction Simraungar and established in Bhaktapur between 1324-1333 AD (1381-1390 Bikram Samvat), she became the titular deity or royal goddess of the Malla kings in the 14th century, after which Taleju temples were erected in her honour in Patan and Kathmandu as well.

Bhaktapur is, perhaps, the place to begin, for the city’s Taleju Temple, housed in the vicinity of Bhaktapur Durbar Square, is the oldest of the lot. Bhaktapur’s Taleju Temple is located in Mulchok Court near the Golden Gate. Traditionally, this Taleju Temple was only open to the reigning kings, but is now open to all Hindus as well. Others can visit the temple, but non-Hindus are not allowed inside. On your visit, pay special attention to the beautifully sculpted archways and window frames, which reveal a fine attention to detail from centuries past.

The second Taleju Temple within the valley is located in the center courtyard of Patan Durbar Square. Patan’s Taleju Temple was built in 1671 AD (1728 Bikram Samvat) during the reign of King Shree Niwas Malla. Across from Patan’s Taleju Temple is the Taleju Bell. According to Archaeology department of Nepal, the Taleju Bell was installed in 1737 AD (1794 Bikram Samvat) by King Vishnu Malla so that petitioners could alert him when they had filed a grievance or complaint.

Kathmandu’s Taleju Temple is the third (and main) Taleju Temple within the valley was constructed in 1563 AD (1620 Bikram Samvat) by King Mahendra Malla. It is located in Kathmandu Durbar Square in Trishul Chowk, which is attached to the Hanuman Dhoka Palace. Perhaps the most visited of the three structures, There is much lore and mysticism surrounding the beginnings of Kathmandu city’s Taleju Temple. It is said that the temple was built in the shape of a yantra, a mystical diagram said to have magical powers, due to a suggestion that came straight from the mouth of Goddess Taleju herself.

Taleju, though herself seen as a "sexually mature Mothergoddess" [109 Devi, p. 24] is also the very deity who is thought to be embodied and manifested in the Nepalese Living Goddess, the virgin girl Kumari. Taleju or Tulaja Bhawani is the chief protective deity of Nepal and its royal family, and is sometimes equated with Durga; though the latter is much more fierce. It is thought that the king's power derives from her - and a king who fails to receive her blessing was most likely to lose his kingdom.

A tour of the three Taleju Temples combines a number of appealing aspects of exploring the Kathmandu Valley: Hindu religion, architectural grandeur, ancient legends and Malla-era history. Stop by one of the Taleju Temples, or all three to compare and contrast the grandiose wonders of the centuries-old structures. The goddess is also worshipped in the form of the Shri Yantra.
