Janai Purnima

altNear the full moon all high-caste men (Chhetri and Brahmin) must change the janai (sacred thread), looped over their left shoulder. This ritual amasses thousands of pilgrims to the sacred Gosainkund lakes where they drape a garland over the statue of Shiva and throw coins at a sacred lingam and the Kumbeshwar Temple in Patan.
