Nepal is celebrating Ram Navami today. It’s a Hindu spring festival that commemorates the birth of Lord Ram, who is revered as Lord Bishnu’s seventh avatar.
The day is observed on Navami tithi (ninth day) during Shukla paksha (bright phase) of the Hindu month of Chaitra, according to the Hindu calendar.
The government has declared today a public holiday to commemorate the occasion.
Today, all government and public offices will be closed.
