Every dog has its day, especially for canines in Nepal , this is why we are bringing it to Sydney. The five-day Nepalese Hindu festival of Tihar starts for a week and the second day is known as Kukur Tihar or “day of the dogs”.Dogs are celebrated and blessed with a Tika – a red mark applied to their forehead. The animals are also given flowers garlands and offered food as part of the festival.
