Buddha Jayanti

Held in Lumbini (the birthplace of Buddha) on the date of Buddha’s birth, enlightenment and ascension into nirvana (all the same day), this festival is celebrated with a great fair. Full moon celebrations continue in Swayambhunath, Bodhnath and Patan, with monks dancing being one of the highlights.
