KATHMANDU: Fulpati is being taken into the homes as per tradition throughout the country today on the occasion of the Bada Dashain festival.

Fulpati, an assortment of flowers, leaves and fruits of different plants considered auspicious, is anointed at the Dashain Ghar on the seventh day of the Bada Dashain festival.

The Fulpati is brought to Kathmandu as per the Vedic rites to be anointed at the Dashain Ghar, Hanumandhoka Durbar.

The Gurujyuko platoon, the Nepal Army, the Nepal police, and high-ranking officials of Armed Police and civil service, the Asha Gurja team, band music, Panchebaja, decorated kalsyoulis, and a procession along with cultural pageantry leave for Hanuman Dhoka from Jamal with the Fulpati.

It does not require an auspicious hour to take Fulpati into homes, according to the Nepal Panchanga Nirnayak Samiti (Nepal Calendar Determination Committee).

Though the Dashain festival begins from Ghatasthapana the festival sees special fervor from the day of Fulpati.

All government, as well as private offices, close down from today encouraging people to go back to their respective ancestral homes and take blessings from Durga Bhawani as well as their elders.
