2022 Jan 14, 10:19, Parbat

The Bihadi Rural Municipality in Parbat district has ordered to cancel this year’s Maghe Sankranti Fair at Setibeni on the bank of Kali Gandaki River. Generally, the site that has the world’s largest Shaligram Shila (stone) witnesses a huge gathering of people every year on the occasion of the Maghe Sankranti Fair.

Following the federal government’s order to impose a restriction on the gathering of more than 25 people owing to the rising cases of coronavirus, the local level issued an order to the organizer for fear of coronavirus infection, the Rural Municipality’s Chairman Kamal Bhusal said.

The holy site is in the bordering area of Parbat, Syangja, and Gulmi district, and devotees from at home and abroad throng the site on the occasion of Maghe Sankranti.
