About the Art

Two Karunamaya Jatras are celebrated in Kathmamdu Valley, Jana BahāDyo Jatra (White Karunamaya) and Bunga Dyo Jatra (Red Karunāmaya). Karunamaya are compassionate beings who liberate sentient beings from suffering. A chariot with 32 divine characteristics, constructed with 365 wood pieces, is believed to embody great divinities like Bhairava, Naaga, the sun and the moon.
