Kaag Tihar being observed today


October 23, Kathmandu: As part of the Tihar festival, Kaag(Crow) Tihar is being celebrated as the first day of the five-day long festival.

The day is being observed by offering food to the crow.

The crow is regarded as the messenger of Yamaraj, the Hindu god of death and justice. Prof. Srikrishna Adhikari, Chairperson of the Nepal Calendar Determination Committee, told that as the Kaag Tihar should be celebrated on the day of Trayodashi in the morning, it has been decided to celebrate this festival on Sunday as per the religious scriptures.

It is religiously believed that feeding rice pudding to crows on this day will carry a good message to Yamaraj.

On this occasion, a special worship service is held today at Kageshwari Mahadev Temple located in Kageshwari Manohara Municipality Ward No. 1.
