Meaning: Nepali chayara (classical) dance.

In the Nepali legend, Manjushree is the divine founder of Nepalese civilization and the creator of Kathmandu Valley. In his vision, he saw a big blue flame on a lotus in the middle of a vast expanse of lake with serpents inhabiting it long ago. He went to search and found it. He cut the mountains with his sword of wisdom to drain the water and formed the Kathmandu Valley for the Nepali worshippers.
