Sithi Chahre of Nepal Sambat 1141.

Nepal has been a country rich in festivals and dates since ancient times. Nepal is known as one of the richest countries in the world in terms of pilgrimage, culture, and festivals. Especially the Newa community living around Kathmandu has been famous for its culture and traditions since ancient times and among these rituals and civilizations, we present today with an important culture, Sithi Chahre.

Sithi Chahre, i.e. Chaturdashi, falls on the Jeshtha Chartudashi. On this day, the Newa community worships Sithi Chahre. According to the Nepal Samvat, today's date falls on the Chaturdashi of the month of Bachalathva in the year 1141. Chaturdashi is called Chahre in the Newa language and today is Sithi Chahre. Today it is customary to worship from house to house, on this day Sithi i.e. Kumar Kartike, the son of Shiva is worshiped. Not only Kumara but also other deities are worshiped and adored. Sithi Nakha is commencing, the excitement of new year, processions, dedication, and the series of festivals from Baisakh month is on its peak. Best wishes for the Sithi Chahre of the Nepal sambat 1141. This year is a bit different from others, COVID19 and lockdown have completely locked our processions and congregations however, excitements and dedications are the same. Stay safe, best wishes!

Hamro Patro - Connecting Nepali Communities
Hamro Patro is one of the first Nepali app to include Nepali Patro, launched in 2010. We started with a Nepali Calendar mobile app to help Nepalese living abroad stay in touch with Nepalese festivals and important dates in Nepali calendar year. Later on, to cater to the people who couldn’t type in Nepali using fonts like Preeti, Ganesh and even Nepali Unicode, we built nepali mobile keyboard called Hamro Nepali keyboard.
