The Narayangadh-Muglin road section which is closed every day for four days for construction-related work will remain open throughout for two days, targeting the Maghe Sankranti fair at Devghat Dham.

The road section will open for traffic in the afternoon of January 14 and 15. Maghe Sankranti, one of the festivals of the Hindus, falls on January 15 this year.

Chief District Officer Asman Tamang said the work being done by blocking the road for four hours in the afternoon on those two days will be postponed. The road is going to be kept open considering the high number of pilgrims traveling to Devghat Dham.

At present, traffic is being stopped from 11 am to 3 pm on that section of the road and work is being done to clear the side-hill for the construction of bridges on the road section.

 Devotees from all over the country, including from neighboring countries, come to take a holy bath in Devghat. According to the Chairperson of the Devghat Area Development Committee, Badri Adhikari, more than five hundred thousand devotees are expected to arrive in Devghat this year. There is a popular belief among the Hindus that bathing in Devghat during the Makar Mela or fair will bring good future and well-being.
