Nepal is not only known for its Himalayas but also very popular for unique culture, tradition and religious festivals. There are more than 50 festivals celebrated in Nepal each year. While the national festivals have fixed dates, religious and cultural festivals are set by astrologers following the lunar calendar. The best part about the festivals in Nepal is that all the events are celebrated with the same enthusiasm and in large numbers the way it used to be hundreds of years ago when people had no other means of entertainment. Even today festivals are not only the yearly spectacles, but also are living part of rich cultural legacy. Celebrating festivals effectively unite the people having diverse cultural background together and this is also the chance of sharing their social lives. Although most of these festivals are religious some have historical significance too. Most Nepalese festivals are related to different Hindu and Buddhist gods and goddesses and they are celebrated on such days divine for them by religion and tradition.
