After the droning monsoon, the fine weather comes for the biggest festival Dashain which lies between October and November.

In fact that it is the celebration of the victory over the untruth and the evil spirit. It is celebrated for 15 days with great pleasure. Many male goats and male buffaloes are sacrificed in the temples of goddess Durga to please her in the 8th day of festival. 10th day is the most important that is called Dashain.
