Today married and unmarried women crowd Pashupatinath and other temples of Lord Shiva. Women dressed in beautiful red saris with shining glass beads, singing and dancing is a common sight during this festival as women recall Parbati’s devotion to her husband Shiva.

Married women visit their father’s homes. All daughters and sisters receive gifts from their male kin and an elaborate feast is prepared for them.

It is a loud and cheerful celebration until late at night. The blessings of Shiva and Parbati ensure that family life will be joyous for all.

Place to observe: Pashupatinath and other Shiva temples
