The Machhindranath Jatra or the Bunga Dyaḥ Jatra that was due to take place in April has been deferred this year due to the coronavirus pandemic. The chariot has been standing stranded at Pulchok for months now. It is believed that the chariot must be taken to Bungmati before the Malamas which will begin at around mid-Spetember in 2020.
