Nepalese from the ethnic Gurung community donned in traditional attire takes part in an event to celebrate Tamu Losar, at Tudikhel, in Kathmandu, on December 30, 2021.
The Tamu Losar festival marks the beginning of the Tamu Sambat or Gurung Calendar Year. Gurung divides time into cycles of 12 years (lohokor), to each year of which a special name is given, which is known as Barga (lho). Losar also heralds the change in ‘Lho’. According to the oriental astrological system, there are 12 Los–garuda, serpent, horse, sheep, monkey, bird, dog, deer, mouse, cow, tiger and cat.
