Holi Celebration in BHAKTAPUR

Holi‘s origins are more distinctive in Bhaktapur, and are linked to a pornographic demonstration.

It is symbolized with a ritual in front of the Dattatraya Temple that includes a Newari musical performance. Devotees thronged around a 3-foot-long, 30-inch-diameter wooden pole to pay respect and cut it into the shape of a human phallus. People come to pay reverence to the wooden pole, which is a symbol of Phallus, and believe that if they observe it, they will be blessed.

Every morning until the full moon in the Lunar Calendar month of Falgun, the singing takes place here. This Hymn is sung by the people of the Bhimsen Guthi, also known as ‘Jayaju,’ a sacred trust. During the song, a wooden pole portraying god Bhimsen’s Phallus is ritualistically put into a hole created in a big Crimson sheet of fabric symbolizing Draupadi’s Genitalia. Draupadi is the queen of the Five Pandava Brothers in the Mahabharata mythology. Every year, the local Bhimsen Guthi celebrates Fagu as a traditional sex and fertility festival.
