Kathmandu, Apr 17: The vibrant Rath Jatra of Seto Machhindranath continues to captivate devotees in Kathmandu, with Wednesday marking the second day of the revered procession. Lasting for four days, this auspicious event centers around the worship of ‘Janbaha Dyo,’ the white manifestation of Machindranath revered as the divine bringer of rain.

On the second day, the grand chariot was ceremoniously pulled from Asan Chowk, making its way through Balkumari, Keltol, Indra Chowk, and Makhan before reaching its destination in front of the Kalbhairava statue at Hanumandhoka. Young musicians from various groups added to the festive ambiance with traditional Newari music, enchanting the devotees who thronged to witness the revered deity on the beautifully adorned chariot.

As the Rath Yatra progresses into its third day, it will traverse through Lagan via Maru and Chikan Mughal, continuing to draw devotees and spectators alike. Culminating on the final day, a special puja will be performed before the deity is reverently returned to Janbahal, marking the symbolic transition from winter to spring.

Following the conclusion of the Jatra, the chariot will be dismantled, initiating the process of rebuilding it in preparation for the next Chaite Dashain festival, a testament to the enduring tradition and cultural significance of the Seto Machhindranath Rath Jatra.
