As well as to 27 days by his grandson Yog Narendra Malla.  However nowadays, because of lack of proper financing. It is just performed for 10 or 12 days according to the huge graphs.

 

A QUICK HISTORY

During the regime of Siddhi Narsingh Malla, relating the legend, an excellent tragedy befell on the land. It was as if the city had shed its gloss. No amount of yagyas and pujas seemed to recover the initial splendor of the city. Downhearted, the king talked to his found out experts. They encouraged him to invoke Narasimha, the vicious, wrathful as well as bloodthirsty version of Bishnu. To assist him to fix the trouble.

This dancing has faced lots of obstacles and also obstacles such as throughout the transformation of 2007 B.S( 1950 ADVERTISEMENT).

The major crowd puller is on Kartik Krishna Pakshya Trayodashi Tithi. He is part of an intense lion with the body of a human eliminates the demon Hiranyakashyapu. This particular act brings a message that anyone that tries to do unwell as well as injury others.

Upon hitting the pillar, out came Narasimha, an incarnation of Bishnu, in the kind of half-man as well as half-animal. The deity then killed the devil with his nails maintaining him in his lap, basing on the limit at sundown.
