Saga Dawa Festival

Festival | Religious Festival

Saga Dawa is the Triple Blessed Festival and is considered as the holiest of the holy Buddhist Festivals. On this auspicious day, Lord Buddha took birth and after years of meditation got Nirvana and left the human body on the very same day.

The highlight of the day’s observation in Gangtok is a procession carrying the Holy Books of the teachings of the Buddha from the Tsuk-La-Khang Monastery in the Palace around the town.
