Tharu Cultural Show

Tharu Cultural Show

Most of the larger lodges put on shows of traditional Tharu songs and dances for guests, including the popular stick dance, where a great circle of running men whack sticks together in time. It’s very much a tourist experience, but the shows are fun and they provide employment for local people. In Sauraha there are nightly performances at the Sauraha Tharu Culture House and the Tharu Culture Program.
