Cultural and traditional are the patterns of our life they are our identities. Nepal is the rich land of that culture and traditional. Nepalese society was divided into four cast Brahmins, Chhetri baisya, and shudra. Similarly, Brahmins were for conducting religious and rites, chheetri were for fighting, baisas were for doing for agriculture and business and shuddras were for sweeping cleaning and for low respected jobs. This is how the society was divided on the basis of cast and their occupations gradually, it developed as a culture. Nepal is the rich country of culture patterns they are of high value in the team of their uniqueness and originalities. Such practice is seen to culminate during Malla period. Some of them are as follow

  • Worshipping main god (kul debata) of an own cast.
  • Ihi puja (newar )
  • Chaurasi (84) puja or budo janko ( nawar)
  • Death custom
  • Cutting hairs during Bratabanda and after someone death, etc are some of the examples of originalities of our pattern of life.
