The 2565th birth anniversary of Gautam Buddha is being observed across the country on Wednesday.
The celebrations this year have seen limited numbers of monks, followers and others in view of the prohibitory orders enforced to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
People in Kathmandu sprinkled colours on Boudha Stupa as they marked Buddha Jayanti.
Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Budhha, also marked the day with solemn celebrations. There was limited in-person attendance at Mayadevi Temple premises following health protocols amid the Covid-19 surge.
