Kirtipur Indrayani Jatra

Kirtipur Indrayani Jatra

The Indrayani Jatra is a festival that takes place in Kirtipur every November/December and it’s one that’s not to be missed.

Join the local community as they decorate a chariot and offer blessings in the morning. Once it has been decorated, the chariot is moved to various locations in the Kirtipur hilltop area throughout the day. At each stop, more blessings are offered which are then thrown to the eagerly waiting crowds.

Finally, the chariot comes to rest at Bagh Bhairab Temple in the evening.

Local tip

Take care as the chariot is moved from one location to the next. It takes about 40 people to carry it and they move with speed!
