On the first day of the Nepali calendar (Baisakh 1), a large number of people line up to take a dip in a heavenly lake in Tokha, Kathmandu, and locals observe the 'Sapan Tirtha Mela,' during which the entire town participates in the festival with a 'rath yatra' (chariot ride), supplications, and fests for the next four days. The water in the lake is thought to have healing capabilities, and people bathe there to get rid of their ailments and make an offering to Goddess Sapana Tirtha.
