The name "Yamari Puni" originates from Newari words, "ya" meaning like, "mari" meaning delicacy and "puni" meaning full moon. People from the Newar community celebrate the festival once a year, in the day and at night during a full moon, by performing traditional songs and dance. They also prepare Yamari also called Yomari, a confection of rice flours to be consumed specially on the day of the festival. [Photo/Agencies]
