Janakpur is one of the popular tourist destinations in Nepal which is located in Dhanusa district. It is more a site for pilgrimage than for merely doing a tour. It is the birthplace of Sita, the wife of the Hindu God Ram who was the daughter of king Janak who’s been well-known in Hindu mythology for his intellect and wisdom. It is believed that both of them got engaged and eventually married in Janakpur which is portrayed by the statues of deities and saints performing the wedding ceremony at Ram Janaki temple. Due to this reason, a big festival called ‘Bibaha panchami’ is celebrated each year with special functions, to mark their wedding anniversary.
Besides this, Janakpur is the host to the only railway station of Nepal, which connects Janakpur to Jayanagar of India. Various sacred rivers have their route in this place and more than two hundred sacred ponds are situated here where people from all over the world come for a holy bath. There are facilities of excellent fooding and accommodation for those who come there during their vacation in Nepal. we Nepal one tours best travel agency of Nepal provides you a best service tours in Nepal,If you think to visit Nepal.

Bara (or Woh as called in Newari) is a typical Nepali cuisine which is popular mainly among the Newari people. It is a dish made of Urad beans and looks like a pancake in its appearance. Patan Durbar Square is quite famous for ‘Aaloo Who’ which includes potato in its recipe. Besides this, you can go and enjoy this dish in any of the Newari eateries anywhere inside or outside of Kathmandu valley.
As it is a traditional cuisine, Bara is offered mainly during the Jatras (Newari feasts) and special ceremonies. It can be eaten singly or in combination with other add-ons like tomato sauce, curry and in some cases yogurt too which gives it a special name of ‘Dahi-bara’ (Dahi-Yogurt).
