Bull Fighting in Nuwakot

Bull Fighting in Nuwakot

Like every year, a large number of people gather in the Nuwakot region to witness Bullfighting – during the day of Maghe Sankranti – which proclaims the finish of winter.

Many individuals from outside Nuwakot visit the place just to see the bullfighting. It is believed that this fighting was introduced by Jaya Prithvi Bahadur Singh, a ruler of the old Bajhang Kingdom, over a century ago.
