The market starts at late noon of 4th day of first lunar month at a large waste land, beside a local temple. Though being called a market, there are hardly stores or stalls, and people who join the market usually bring along a chicken alive to make a sacrifice for the god there. People barely bargain about the prices, just discussing together in their smallest voices. Local people believe that going to this market is like giving out a blessing in disguise towards the dead. This belief, along with their religious routines can be considered as a bold characteristic of spiritual lives of Northern people.
