DescriptionThis three day long festival is celebrated every year symbolizing the establishment of Buddhism in Tibet by the great saint, Guru Rinpoche (padmasambhaya). The festival is colorful and full of symbolic dances conveying Buddhist teachings on many levels. The monks perform the masked dance, to usher some of the protective deities as manifestation of the legendary saint Guru Rinpoche. The dance numbers also display the defeat of demons and the initiation of Buddhism to Tibet.
Thus, Tengboche Monastery and Mani Rimdu are major attractions for tourists in Nepal. The number of tourists visiting the monastery is said to be about 15,000 per year and during peak tourist season the number is said to be 600 per week.
