It is said that calamity
is certain to strike the land in the event
of the chariot overturning or breaking
down during the course of this festival.
(Quite often, it does collapse!).Following
the construction, the chariot is towed
through the streets of Patan by throngs
of devotees every day. Each day, it is
put to rest in one of the many venerated
spots in the city.This goes on for a month
until it comes to rest on the big field
outside the zoo and end with the Bhoto
Jatra, another major festival, during
which the bejewelled 'bhoto' of Machhendranath
is displayed to the public.
