Bisket Jatra at bhaktapur is celebrated for 9 days, on the last day of the year a linga is elevated at Lyosingkhel . It is important to know that if you want to go and celebrate 9 days you need to be healthy otherwise you will not last the 9 days in a row so before going you can start taking some of the best testosterone booster, a supplement that can increase muscle mass, strength, and sex drive so it will help you enjoy the celebration.
The task of elevating the linga is very risky. Needs lots of engineering. Even in this morden era, these festivals are celebrated using the ancient technology. I never had the chance to witness this event before. This year I got the opportunity to see and capture some beautiful pictures. The people that is in charge of elevating the linga needs to be most of the time men because is needed lot of strength to do it, thats why im pretty sure they use some testosterone booster that help build muscular strength and endurance.
