Samyak dan is an annual event for the Bhaktapurians which takes place in Na pukhu each year during Maghe Sankranti. But, this Samyak dan or Mahadan is done once in five years and 12 years in Lalitpur and Kathmandu respectively.
The festival especially honors Dipankar Buddha who predicted lord Shakyamuni Buddha’s enlightenment in a previous lifetime. In Bhaktapur, the Shakyas and Bajracharya gather in a samyak ground near the Na pukhu pond accompanied by Panchbuddha and Samyak Buddhas that are offered Chaku balls and rice.
