Narasimha Avatar: This is a unique type of festival that is observed at Patan Durbar Square. It’s a Newari cultural program where we can see Newari Musical Drama and Dances. The dances are very ancient. King Siddi Narsingh Malla of Lalitpur started the Kartik Naach in Nepal Sambat (year) 762. Historians assume that the king decided to start the festival following the advice from his teachers Hari Bansa Rajopadhayay and Bishwanath Upadhayay to celebrate the completion of Krishna Mandir, the temple dedicated to Lord Krishna, situated inside the Durbar Square.
