As Tihar approaches, farmers are busy picking Makhamali flowers at Gundu in Bhaktapur. Farmers are seen picking flowers every morning and making garlands in the afternoon. 

It is customary for sisters to give a Makhamali flower garland to their brothers and sisters on the day of Bhai Tika. Businessmen have been flocking here to buy Makhamali flower garlands at Rs 20 to 25 per garland.
