Held on the 5th day of the bright fortnight either in early November or December, this festival commemorates the marriage of Sita to Rama. Thousands of pilgrims from all over Nepal and India go to Janakpur (birthplace of Sita) to celebrate the marriage. The wedding is re-enacted with a parade carrying Rama’s icon to Sita’s temple by elephant.
