Sagya Dawa Festival is one of the most ceremonious religious festivals in the Tibet Autonomous Region. It comes during the fourth month of Tibetan calendar every year held by Buddhists.
The birth and the attainment of nirvana of Sakyamuni is believed on April 15 in Tibetan calendar (June 15 in Gregorian this year), so more Buddhist ceremonies are held in this month.
