Fulpati, a collection of sacred flowers, leaves, and fruits, is anointed today at the Dashain Ghar on the seventh day of Vijaya Dashami.
Following Vedic rites, Fulpati is transported to Kathmandu to be revered at the historic Hanumandhoka Durbar.
The Fulpati procession showcases the Gurujyuko platoon, armed forces, officials, and cultural elements. It starts from Jamal and ends at Hanuman Dhoka, featuring traditional music and attire.
Meanwhile, a palanquin cradling Phulpati departs from the Dashainghar in Gorkha Durbar, embarking on a journey to Hanumandhoka Durbar in Kathmandu.
This journey is steeped in age-old traditions and adheres to Vedic rites.
Since King Prithvi Narayan Shah’s reign at Hanumandhoka Durbar in Kathmandu, an unbroken tradition unfolds: Phulpati’s palanquin departs Gorkha Dashainghar without fail.
The attendants of the Gorkha Durbar carry the Phulpati up to Phulpati Chautara at Satipipal, from where it continues its journey to Kathmandu.
The act of bringing Fulpati into homes is not bound by an auspicious hour, as affirmed by the Nepal Calendar Determination Committee.
