Janai Purnima

Janai Purnima A Hindu festival, Janai Purnima, occurs on a full moon day. In the morning, pious brahmins bathe in holy Bagmati and Visnumati rivers and change their janai(sacred thread) which they wear across their bodies. Hindus visit the five storied temple of Kumbeswor in Patan and pay respect to Kumbeswor, Lord Shiva. http://www.angelfire.com/trek/myglorynepal/festival.htm
