Rato Machhindranath Jatra is a traditional festival celebrated in Nepal, particularly in the Kathmandu Valley. It is also known as the Red Machhindranath Jatra or the Bunga Dyah Jatra. The festival is held annually in honor of the god Machhindranath, who is believed to bring rain and good fortune to the region.

The festival begins with the installation of a large chariot (known as the “rato” or “red” chariot) in the center of the city. The chariot is adorned with colorful flags and decorations, and a large idol of Machhindranath is placed inside.

Throughout the festival, the chariot is pulled through the streets of the city by devotees, accompanied by music, dance, and other religious ceremonies. The festival is a time of celebration and prayer, as people come together to ask for blessings and good fortune from god.

The Rato Machhindranath Jatra is an important cultural event in Nepal, and it is attended by people of all ages and backgrounds. It is a time of coming together as a community and offering devotion to a revered deity.
