Vijaya Dashmi (Dashain)

Vijaya Dashmi (Dashain)Vijaya Dashmi (Dashain) is undoubtedly the biggest festival in Nepal celebrated during month of Kartik of Bikram Sambat calendar (late September and early October) for 10 days. Even the festival roots back to Hindu traditions, families from various religious and cultural backgrounds gather and celebrate Dashain with the feast.

Dashain traces its roots back to the great victory of good over evil. The victory of evil against good was symbolized by goddess Durga’s victory over demon Mahisasur who was disused as water buffalo. Another story tells us about the lord Ram victory over demon king Ravana in Ramyana.
