Where guests are chased away

thecho-temple In Nepal, we consider guest the God’s representative. Hence, every guest is heartily welcomed at home. But, that is not the case in the Thoche village in Lalitpur.

The villagers don’t allow guests in their homes during a month long festival, celebrated every 12 years. In that time, even the married daughters aren’t allowed to visit their parents. The people in the village also don’t go out of their homes in that time.

During the festival, there is a social curfew in the village in which nobody can walk in the night. More in Nepali in Kantipur.< /p>
