Gadhimai Temple Festival in Nepal

Last Updated on November 19, 2022 by Alpha Adventure Treks

Rating: 5 out of 5.

The primary Gadhimai temple is located in the Mahagadhimai Municipality’s Bariyarpur village in the Bara District of south-central Nepal. The area is well recognized as the motherland of the Gadhimai-dedicated Bhojpuri people. And visitors from various areas come here mostly to worship the Gadhimai Devi, who is revered as the goddess of strength and might.

Along the Indian border, 160 kilometers from the Kathmandu Valley, is the pagoda-style temple of Gadhimai. As a result, the temple is equally important to both Indian inhabitants (especially those in Bihar) and Nepalese citizens who live in or around the area.

Gadhimai Devi, a manifestation of the Hindu goddess of force Kali, is worshipped at the Gadhimai Temple. Although the name commonly refers to the Gadhimai festival, held at the Gadhimai temple region in central Terai of Nepal, the temple is located in Mahagadhimai Municipality in Bara District of south central Nepal.

The goddess Gadhimai first appeared about 265 years ago when Bhagwan Chaudhary, the creator of the Gadhimai Temple, dreamed that she demanded blood in exchange for releasing him from prison, shielding him from evil, and promised prosperity and power.

The sacrifice of an animal has been made every five years since Chaudhary successfully defied the goddess’ request for a human sacrifice. Festival goers ring bells as a form of devotion.

The killing is done to appease the goddess Gadhimai in the hopes of gaining a wish or preventing disaster in the future.

The festival, which has been around for more than 200 years, is attended by millions of people. In order to appease Gadhimai, the goddess of power, numerous animals are sacrificed on a vast scale, including water buffalo, pigs, goats, chickens, and pigeons.

The festival has been referred to as the world’s largest or one of the largest animal sacrifice events. It is claimed that 500,000 animals were sacrificed during the Gadhimai festival.

People also offer coconuts, candy, red clothing, etc. In 2015, false information surfaced regarding Nepal’s temple trust’s intention to stop doing animal sacrifices during the festival.

Must know facts about Gadhimai Festival of Nepal

Gadhi Mai, Virta Mai (Birganj), Boudhi Mai (Madhuwan, Bara), Sansari Mai (Shiva Nagar, Pothiyahi), Kanhar Mai (Sameera Bagadh), and Ghodashi Mai are thought to be the seven sisters of the goddess of Gadhi Mai (Dharampur, Rautahat district).

These seven sisters come together once every five years for the auspicious Gadhi Mai fair. The village of Bariyarpur is transformed into a beautiful landscape for animal sacrifice.

The devotees who attend this expo have access to a national and international arena for brotherhood, fraternity, and understanding. This fair is held for 20 days.

  • The major objective of followers is to win the Goddess Gadhimai Devi’s favor. She is thought to be the Hindu religion’s goddess of power. Animal sacrifices, according to participants, will put an end to evil and bring wealth into their lives.
  • In a concrete slaughterhouse close to the Gadhimai shrine, more than 200 men slaughter the animals.
  • There is a sizable crowd of worshippers and animals in this location throughout the month of November. More than 5 million people from Nepal and several of the southern Indian states (Uttar Pradesh and Bihar), according to estimates, will attend the festival.
  • Companies in India and Nepal buy all the animal meat and bones after the celebration is over.

The Myths and heresies about Gadhimai

Every shrine in Nepal is wrapped in a history of religious beliefs, myths, and tales, which is not surprising. The mysterious history of Gadhimai began some 900 years ago with Bhagwan Chaudhary, a kind and unassuming Bariyarpur resident.

The thieves were caught in the act and paid the price with their deaths at the hands of the furious villagers, according to the legend: One day a theft occurred at Bhagwan Choudhary’s home.

Bhagwan Chaudhary accepted responsibility for the crime himself and was transported to Nakkhu jail in Kathmandu out of fear that his fellow villagers would be found guilty.

He was asked to be sent to Bariyarpur and the crime scene by the goddess of Makawanpur Gadhi, who first came in his dream one night and continued to appear on successive nights.

Bhagwan Chaudhary was released from the prison by the goddess’ occult abilities, and a pinch of earth from her foot to his turban gave him free passage back to his village.

Gadhimai demanded five human sacrifices annually in exchange. Bhagwan Chaudhary graciously gave up his life in sacrifice, stating that he was unable to offer human sacrifice.

Instead, he made a promise to do a quintuple sacrifice (an animal pancha bali) every five years. It would contain a water buffalo, a rat, a pig, a rooster, and several other animals.

And so the custom of using an animal pancha bali to please Gadhimai, the goddess of strength and prosperity as well as a protector against evil, was born. However, this ceremony was unsuccessful since Bariyarpur’s children and youth started falling ill and dying all of a sudden.

After addressing Gadhimai once more, the goddess instructed Bhagwan Chaudhary to give a human sacrifice in addition to the pancha bali.

A human was sought after, but to no avail. Fortunately, a peasant from Simri in the neighboring Rautahat area came to the rescue and offered five drops of blood from his body—from the chest, mouth, bottom part of the eye, thigh, and arm—instead of his life as a sacrifice. Amazingly, that stopped the disaster.

Thus commences the sacrificial ceremony

The ritual officially begins after the chief priest performs panchbali, the tantric ceremonies of Goddess Tulaja, also known as Gadhimai, and the sacrifice of white mice, pigeons, ducks, pigs, and buffalo together with other animals on Marga Shukla Saptami according to the solar calendar.

By severing five separate body parts, blood is offered as a sign of the sacrifice. This time, Dukha Dhami, a tantrik from Simri named Rautahat, began by using the holy weapon to pierce the forehead, ear, tongue, right chest, and right loin. The puja (worship) is performed all night long.

The primary seat of worship, Bramhasthan, is claimed to naturally light up with the holy light as a result of the prayers and puja. According to Mangal Chaudhary, the temple’s main priest, “Panchabali starts after the automatic kindling of the light.” The violent act of sacrifice, which is frequently decried, has a long history in Hinduism.

The opponents of the practice claim that it misinterprets the symbolic meaning of avoiding demonic and monster traits.

The best summer treks in Nepal for a summer vacation

Last Updated on November 14, 2022 by Alpha Adventure Treks

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Have you ever participated in summer treks in Nepal? Summer hikes are a lot of fun and also bring the sun. You won’t ever be let down when visiting Nepal because the country’s natural beauty, cultural diversity, and historical insights always have something new to offer you.

Even if all you do is pack a suitcase with a map and fly to Kathmandu while taking a little nap, you won’t be dissatisfied. In this period, lower elevations have hot weather while higher elevations experience warm weather. Additionally, since the snow melts more quickly in the warmer temperatures, there may be more snowfall in the higher elevations than in the summer. Trails may become muddy, wet, and hazardous as a result.

While on a summer trek in Nepal, you have more opportunities to interact with locals and learn about their culture, traditions, and beliefs in addition to the beautiful foliage, wildlife activity, and mountain beauty.

The region around Mustang, Manang, and Dolpo is referred to as the “Kingdom beyond the Himalaya” because it is shielded from the majority of monsoon rainfall by the Himalayas.

Upper Mustang, Lower Mustang (also known as Jomsom Muktinath Trekking), Upper Dolpa, and Lowe Dolpa Trekking are the most well-liked summer treks in Nepal. The Nepal Summer Trek is the finest time to do the Mustang trek up to Lo-Manthang. The high, dry plateaus of Tibet are also perfect for summer trekking in Nepal.

Upper Mustang Trek:

The Upper Mustang Trek is a fantastic option if you want to spend your summer vacation in one of the most breathtaking locations on earth. One of the most well-known treks in all of Nepal is the Upper Mustang Trek. There is something special about visiting in the summer.

It is renowned for its spectacular mountain panoramas, exquisite culture, and breathtaking landscapes. During the summer, the foliage is exploding with color, and the panorama is just magnificent.

In addition to the wonderful weather, the temperature difference between day and night can reach 20 degrees. Additionally, the climate supports flora and fauna that are uncommon in other regions of the planet.

You will have the opportunity to witness the breathtaking splendor of the Himalayas as this walk takes you up and down these slopes. You can view gorgeous vistas, snow-capped peaks, and lovely meadows from the breathtaking overlooks. You will enjoy breathtaking views of the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Damodar Himal peaks while in the Upper Mustang.

Upper Dolpo Trek:

It is advised to take part in the Upper Dolpo Trek during the summer months because it is a tough, remote area, and camping/home stay trek. With less rain around the routes from Juphal to Jumla and more exploration chances from Buddhism and Hinduism, explore the Shey Phoksundo National Park and receive an insight of rural living, culture, and customs while on your Upper Dolpo Trek. The best long summer trek in Nepal is the Upper Dolpo Trek. Join this expedition for the chance to explore a brand-new world far from modernity. Dolpa Trek is the perfect option for you if you have a lengthy summer vacation and wish to see a remote area of Nepal. While the majority of trekking areas are becoming more urbanized, the Dolpa region is still rather removed from amenities and a modern way of life.

Humla Limi Valley Trek:

The most isolated area of Nepal is Humla. This small region of Nepal draws adventurous hikers looking to veer off the usual path and experience a panoramic mountain view all to themselves. You are probably more likely to keep running into the tough snow panther than a fellow hiker if you go in the middle of the year, in particular. The Limi Valley hike follows an ancient route used for salt trading and travel to the border between Nepal and Tibet. Medieval stone towns make entering the rarely visited Limi Valley with its amazing red rock landscapes feel like traveling back in time. The villages are unaffected by modernization due to their remote location.

Jomsom Muktinath Trek:

The popular pilgrimage trip to Jomsom Muktinath is open year-round, even in the summer. The longer and more difficult Annapurna Circuit Trek also includes a segment where you spend time in the holy sites of Muktinath and Jomsom. The route, which typically stays dry in the summer, is where Buddhist and Hindu practices peacefully coexist. Join the Jomsom Muktinath Trek this summer to receive blessings for both you and your loved ones.

Nar Phu Trek:

One of the quick and versatile summer treks in Nepal is the Nar Phu Trek, which offers a glimpse into the remarkable customs, traditions, and culture of the region’s inhabitants. This trek, one of just a few in Nepal, is located inside the Annapurna Conservation Area. Additionally, this journey is located in a less rainy area of Nepal in the shadow of the Himalayas. Due of the restricted hiking area, in addition to the standard ACAP permit, a special trekking permit is also needed for this trek. The special permit is only valid for one week and costs US$100 during the autumn season and US$75 during the spring season. You can use the standard ACAP Permit, which costs US$30, to do the Annapurna Circuit Trek.

Manang Valley Trek:

One of Nepal’s best and most well-liked trekking regions is the Manang valley. The Manang Valley, a popular hiking location in the western part of Nepal, draws lots of visitors all year round. This trekking trail is located right in the Annapurna area. Numerous tiny settlements surround the Manang Valley, providing excellent opportunities to see native ways of life.
