Ghode Jatra

We went around the town to give you the glimpse of Ghode Jatra, at tundi khel. After weeks of preparation the Jatra was successfully conducted.
The legend has it that Ghode Jatra was held to celebrate the victory over a devil named Tundi who resided over the meadow, today known as Tundikhel.  When the devil died the people of the valley celebrated his death dancing on his body with horses.
It is also believed that the clamor of horses keeps the bad spirits stays away from the city.
