Old pottery has been shattered in various chowks and Dobato (Junctions) across Bhaktapur, and Chhyala is being celebrated once more today. In Nepalbhasa, it’s also known as Chyala Punhi or Mila Punhi.

It is usual for the inhabitants to scatter the old unusable clay utensils in the house in the surrounding chowk on this day, which is commemorated every year on the day of Poush Shukla Purnima. This pattern is still visible. There are two sorts of festivals observed in Bhaktapur, according to residents. One is supposed to eat, while the other is not supposed to eat. On the day of Chhyala Punhi, he said, no food is made in any dwelling. The only way to celebrate the event is to pay cracking utensils.

There is a practice of renting the pot once a year and bringing it in once, notably in the Newar community. On this day, it is customary to hurl Chhyala Punhi and bring it into Dashain. Once a year, Chyala Punhi is thrown and smashed  at chowk, believing that keeping the old rented house in such an inconvenient location will be unlucky.

The festival will be resurrected in two ways: on the one hand, the old utensil-making profession will be revived, and on the other side, the culture will be revived. This ritual has been in Newar society since the beginning of civilization. It’s even possible to think of it as a cleansing ritual.
