Nepalese Bhoto Jatra Public Holiday July 29

The Home Ministry of the Government of Nepal, via its spokesperson, Yadav Prasad Koiralaha, has announced that the Machhindranath's chariot had arrived at Jawalakhel, earlier this week and therefore had declared Friday, July 29, 2016, as the date of this year's Bhoto Jatra non-working public holiday in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley.

Today's announcement that Friday, July 29, 2016, had been declared as the date of the 2016 Bhoto Jatra non-working public holiday in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley, is a bit later than traditionally, as the arrival of the month-long chariot procession of Rato Machindranath Raath Jatra, in Jawalakhel, is regularly followed by a one-off non-working public holiday in the Kathmandu Valley, usually in late June or early July (20-Jun-2014, 06-Jun-2013, 22-Jun-2012, 26-Jun-2011, 26-Jun-2010, and 07-Jul-2007), but much earlier than last year, when the chariot procession of Rato Machindranath Raath Jatra, was halted by the April 25 earthquake, and resumed on September 21, leading to a Bhoto Jatra non-working public holiday in Nepal's Kathmandu Valley the following month (11-Oct-2015).
