The "Nanjing Cultural Day" events were launched in Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal on the afternoon of April 1.

The opening ceremony featured a unique hand-lion dance performance named after its birthplace of Houchong Village in Jiangsu Province. Eight performers from Nanjing's Yongning Street Community presented the performance, also an intangible cultural heritage in Jiangsu, and they were met with loud applause from the audience.

As another highlight of the ceremony, chefs from Jinling Resort in Nanjing cooked traditional food on site, including Yuhua Stone glutinous dumplings, salted duck, duck blood soup and more. While enjoying the Jinling cuisine, participants also got a taste of the unique culture of Nanjing, a historical and cultural city in China.
