Fulpati, an assortment of flowers, leaves and fruits of different plants considered auspicious, is anointed at the Dashainghar on the seventh day of the Dashain festival.

The Fulpati is brought to Kathmandu as per the Vedic rituals to be anointed at the Dashainghar at the Hanumandhoka Durbar.

During the monarchy, the King, as the Head of State, used to attend the Fulpati ritual at Dashainghar, but with the foundation of Republic, the Minister for Culture is attending, said the Durbar Museum Development Committee.

The auspicious hour to bring the Fulpati this year is fixed at 4:00pm. Minister for Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation, Rabindra Adhikari, and local level representatives in Kathmandu have been invited to the ritual.

Though the Dashain festival begins from Ghatasthapana, the festival sees special fervor from the day of Fulpati.

All government as well as private offices remain closed from today encouraging people to go back to their respective ancestral homes and take blessings from Durga Bhawani as well as their elders.
