Famous as Nepali New year, this is yet another main festival of Nepal. At the beginning of Nepali Bisket month, this grand rally is organised in Bhaktapur. This ceremony marks the end of serpents, hence also known as Bisyau Jatra or slaying of serpents. A huge tug of war is organised at Durbar Square, between eastern and western part of the country, on the day of Bisket Jatra. A huge pole, resembling a holy lingam is raised by the river, which is pulled down by the crowd to commence new year officially.
