Chaitra Dasain

Taking place six months prior to the more important Dasain celebration, both festivals are dedicated to Durga. The festival culminates in the early morning sacrifice of goats and buffaloes in Kot Square, central Kathmandu. The Chaitra Dasain festival also heralds the start of the month-long Seto Machhendranath chariot festival in the city.
