Fair being organised to popularise monastery

Nawalparasi, December 8

A fair is set to be organised to popularise Ramgram monastery in Parasi of West Nawalparasi.

Ramgram monastery and Tourism Development Committee will be organising the fair on the monastery premises. The monastery houses astadhatu of lord Gautam Buddha. Organising Committee Chairman Shambhu Upadhaya said Ramgram monastery was not popular even as it housed the astadhatu of Buddha.

“We have planned to organise the fair to inform people about the spiritual as well as other significance of the monastery,” he added. The fair will be held for three days from March 18 to 20 on the occasion of Maghe Purnima. The organising committee said a spiritual camp would also be held for participants. Korean and Thai Pagoda is under-construction on the premises of Ramgram monastery.
