Dog Pooja in Nepal
The second day of Tihar is known as “Kukur Puja” in Nepal and all kinds of dogs whether homeless or pets are worshipped honoured and recognized in Nepal. They are garlanded and a “tika” made up of red dye yogurt and rice is applied on the forehead of the dogs. The colour used for the tika is apparently completely safe for their skin.
Along with recognizing dogs with a floral garland and the “tika” dogs are also served delicious food on the day of Kukur Puja. Each dog in Nepal whether staying in a home or roaming around the streets gets to eat to his/her heart’s content on this day. The food mainly consists of milk meat or eggs. Some people even offer locally made desserts to the dogs. And dogs are not complaining! Variations of “Kukur Puja” are celebrated by Buddhists as well. The famous saying “every dog has its own day” must have its roots in this festival!
Tickets for Dog Festival by Project Entertainment can be booked here.
