Shree Panchami, also known as Saraswati Puja or Basanta Panchami, is a Hindu festival dedicated to Goddess Saraswati, the goddess of wisdom and knowledge. It’s rumoured to be her birthday.

On that day, however, all other people, including students, perform Saraswati puja to appease her. Since school is where we obtain our knowledge, educational institutions have their own puja at their schools. Other worshipers perform puja at the adjacent Saraswoti shrine.

People in Bhaktapur prefer to visit Saswo: dega ( Saraswati sthan). Although it is a modest temple, it is extremely popular.

Buddhists eventually join the Hindus in worshipping Maha Manjushri. He is thought to be the reincarnation of Lord Buddha.

The day is also regarded as a lucky day for starting a new business or beginning school for children.
