Chaite Dashain is the last festival on the annual Hindu calendar. This festival is a two day celebration with the first day as Ram Navami and the second day as Dashami. The festival has the same importance as the 10 days long Bijaya Dashami, even though it is publicly celebrated for 2 days only.

Chaite Dashain is celebrated as the victory of good over evil. It is marked as the day when Lord Ram came back to Ayodhya with his wife Sita and Laxman after 14 years of exile according to Ramayana.  

The victory of Ram is symbolically regarded as the victory of good over evil. It is believed that Ram worshipped goddess Durga Bhawani for 9 days before Ravan was killed. Therefore these 9 days are regarded as days of worship and the tenth day is the day of victory which is also celebrated as Dashain.

It is believed that the 10 day long Dashain was celebrated during this time but due to the climate the festival was moved to autumn for celebration. The festival holds similar importance as Bada Dashain. Animal sacrifices are made in different temples across the country. People come together and celebrate the festival with family and friends.
