Nakhu Kwa siu oneu jatra

Nakhu Kwa siu oneu jatra

“Nakhu Kwa siu oneu” jatra is an annual festival that is celebrated in the memory of the day when Adinath was found at the “Gwa tirtha”, junction of Nakhu and Bagmati river. According to legends, one of the cow herder- Gwala or Gopala, in that particular site of river, saw his cow showering milk (this act is similar to the description we found in discovery of Pashupatinath) and when examined found Adinath there.
