The Kartik Naach (Katti Pyakhan) is held every six years. All the deities except for Barahi and Narsimha take a parade around the Dabalis in Patan. It is a traditional dance performed during Kartik at Patan Durbar Square. King Sidhhi Narsingh Malla started this festival and continues to this day. Kartik Naach Festival was held in Lalitpur on September 3, 2022.
