Doti District Nepal

The former Doti Kingdom included not only Doti district; it was expanded up to Achham, Bajhang, Bajura, Baitadi, Dadeldhura, Kailali, Kanchanpur, Darchula, extending as far as Dehradun and Kumaun Garwal (These days Kumaun Garwal is part of India). History of Doti kingdom is little known. Doti was the capital of that kingdom. Deuki tradition, basically, is practiced not in proper Doti but nearby districts including Dadeldhura, Baitadi and Darchula. During the reign of King Nagi Malla in the 17th century, far western Nepal was in ruin. Natural calamities, drought and cholera consumed his Kingdom. The priests predicted that relief would come if the king offered his daughter to the temple of Bhageshwor Mahadev. Housing facilities were immediately prepared, and the princess began her life with the Gods. When the difficulties in the kingdom were eased, a new tradition was born, that has grossly degenerated and developed in new era and that all credit went to King Mandhata Shahi "Rainka", the next king after Nagi Malla who has honestly claimed 'Deuki Pratha', and now mars the image of cultural purity that Nepal would proudly claim. The story of ‘Deuki’ practice dominates the tradition of the region. These days Doti is the regional Headquarter of Far western development Region. District headquarter is silgadhi, Doti.  

Chhaupadi Tradition: 
The traditions prevailing in the far western region in Nepal is mainly women dominated. During the period of menstruation(5 days), the females have to live in small huts, separate from their family. But, it is gradually eroding. These days this tradition is very rare.
