Saka Dawa Festival Ladakh Detailed Information


The Saga Dawa festival celebrated on the 4th  month of the Tibetan calendar, is a day of great reverence for Buddhist followers. It commemorates the birth, enlightenment, and parinirvana of the Buddha. A unique aspect of this festival is the ritual of changing the Tarboche flag pole by the lamas of nearby monasteries. This ritual believed to influence the year's auspiciousness, takes place in the South of the mountain, Kailash Kora. It is believed that if the pole does not stand erect after the change, it is considered inauspicious by Tibetans. The festival is a widespread celebration observed throughout Ladakh, offering a rich cultural experience.
