National Democracy Day
National Democracy Day is celebrated on the 7th of Falgun, usually on the third week of February. People and the then ruler King Tribhuvan united to topple the autocratic regime on this very day in 2007 BS. It was the day when democracy was first institutionalised in the country. A government holiday is declared for this day and people celebrate the day by paying tribute to known and unknown martyrs. A special function is organised to mark the day in Army Pavilion, Tundikhel.
