By TRN Online, Kathmandu, Apr. 2: Preparations to make a chariot, known as Bhail Kha:, for the famous Biska (Bisket) Jatra has begun in Bhaktapur.
For the Biska Jatra this year, a 30 feet tall chariot of pagoda style is being made at the premises of the five-storied Nyatapola temple at Taumadhi.
Last year, the Jatra was limited only to a Puja ritual due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The making of Bhail Kha: was halted midway due to the nationwide lockdown.

The Jatra, which starts by pulling the Bhail Kha: chariot four days prior to the beginning of the Nepali new year, is celebrated with fervor for nine days.
