Both Bihari people from India and Madhesis from Nepal observe this festival by performing sacrifices of animals like water buffaloes, goats, chickens, pigs and pigeons. By doing this, it is believed that the Gadhimai Goddess will be pleased and will shower everyone involved with her blessings. Gadhimai is the goddess of power.
