Tangmi Mewang

September 17 - September 19

Thangbi Mewang, a three-day festival, illuminates the cultural tapestry of the ancient Thangbi Lhakhang, celebrating its rich heritage. The focal point of the event is the Mewang ceremony, conducted in an open space. Gomchens lead purification rituals while attendees, including guests, leap over the flames seeking absolution from past wrongs. Legend has it that successfully jumping over the fire thrice shields one from misfortune for the entire year, drawing participants from diverse backgrounds eager for blessings. Following the ceremony, mask dances and folk performances grace the temple’s enclosed courtyard according to the festival’s schedule.
