Dashain, the biggest festival of the year, is held during the month of Kartik in the Bikram Sambat calendar (late September and early October). At fifteen days long, it is the most auspicious festival in the Nepalese calendar. The celebration occurs during the bright lunar fortnight which ends on the day of the full moon. Throughout the kingdom of Nepal the goddess Durga, in all her manifestations, is worshipped with innumerable pujas, abundant offerings and sacrifices.
