Dashain Festival Nepal

Dashain is the national festival of Nepal. It is celebrated in all parts of Nepal. The whole event continues for as long as 15 days and ends on the full moon day. Dashain celebrates the victory of goddess Durga over Mahisasur Demon. The  first nine nights are collectively known as Nawaratri which is named after nine night long war in between goddess Durga and Demon Mahisasur. It was only on the tenth day that Mahisasur was killed. Thus, tenth day is also knwn as Vijaya Dashami which means victory in the tenth day.
