The Rato Machhindranath chariot's coconut-throwing jatra took conducted on Wednesday in Thatitol, Lagankhel.

A coconut throwing celebration takes place four days after Machhindranath's chariot arrives in Lagankhel.

After the chariot reaches the Thatitol of Lagankhel, it is usual for the senior chariot maker to climb to the top of the chariot and throw coconuts.

On the afternoon of the coconut throwing day, the senior person climbs to the top of Rato Machhindranath's chariot and prays for the country's happiness and peace.

On this day, there is a lot of jostling and scurrying in Thatitol to find the fallen coconuts. There is a prevalent notion that whoever gets a coconut will have a son.
