Ura Festival holds a folklore behind it which goes like this that once an elderly lady stumbled upon a visitor, a lama outside her home who asked her for a glass of water. And when she came out of the house, she was amazed to see no one except a sack left by him. Further, when she looked into the bag there was an idol in it that is now being represented every year as a remnant of the yesteryear. However, it has been passed on from one generation to another by the descendants of that woman who religiously take care of it.
