Bunga Dhya Jatra (Rato Machhindranath Jatra) is a chariot procession honoring the Buddhist deity of compassion 'Avalokitesvara' held in Lalitpur, Nepal. It is one of the greatest religious events in the city and the longest chariot festival celebrated in the country. Rato Machhindranath is also known as the God of rain.
The 32 haat (hands) long chariot beautifully decorated, inside which resides the God of rain Rato Machhindranath in its small abode. And to see this huge chariot sometimes even towering over houses by the side of the road being pulled by hundred of men is an awesome moment.
The chariot festival is held according to the lunar calendar, so the date is changeable. This year it starts from mid of April.
