Rukum, Nov. 6: A five-day famous religious Digre fair of Rukum has started on Friday. Temple priest Ram Prasad Gautam informed that it is held every year at Digre Sai Kumari Temple from Haribodhani Ekadashi to Purnima.
There is a special puja From Haribodhani Ekadashi to Chaturdashi and a grand fair is held on Purnima. But sacrifices can not be offered on Ekadashi and Purnima.
Visitors come from different parts of the country including neighbour districts like Rolpa, Jajarkot, Salyan and Dang. There is a belief that our wish will be fulfilled when we pray here, Gautam said.
