Kukur Tihar, also referred to as Dog Puja, is a vital aspect of the renowned Hindu celebration of Tihar (Deepawali) and holds substantial cultural and religious merit in Nepal. This festival commemorates the profound connection between humans and dogs, recognizing their friendship and unwavering loyalty. Kukur Tihar exemplifies the sanctity of animals in Hindu beliefs and Nepalese culture by venerating dogs. Although the exact origins of Kukur Tihar remain somewhat ambiguous, it is celebrated on the second day of Tihar, and both Hindu mythology and the esteemed role of dogs in Nepalese society have significantly contributed to its importance.


Deeply ingrained in Nepalese cultural practices, Kukur Tihar embodies a unique facet of the nation's cultural identity and legacy as observed by generations past. It is a distinct celebration rooted firmly in Nepalese customs. Though individuals enthusiastically partake in the festivities, at times leading them away from daily obligations, consistent care and attentiveness for dogs throughout the year can prove challenging. Nevertheless, the fervor displayed during Kukur Tihar highlights the deep appreciation that Nepalis hold for the role dogs have in their lives. Dogs are honored for their loyalty, and Kukur Tihar provides an opportunity for people to express gratitude for the unwavering companionship and faithfulness these animals offer. Loyalty plays a significant role in both Hindu mythology and everyday life.
