A glimpse of Janai Purnima

Observed in the month of Srawan, Janai Purnima is one of the widely celebrated festivals in Nepal. On this day, mainly Chhertris and Brahmins renew their Janai, a sacred thread, worn around their chests and wrists. Janai is given to males during a religious ritual called Bratabandha.

On this day, people visit various Shiva temples to participate in different rituals and worship the Lord. They go to the riverbanks and ponds to take a dip into the water and then move on towards changing their Janai.
