MM8303 KumarisAdd to Lightbox Download
Seven retired Royal Kumaris are honored inside Kathmandu Durbar Square in the morning of the final day of Kumāri Jātrā, where the Royal Kumari is taken around the city in a chariot procession among thousands of the country's Hindus and Nepali Buddhists. The word Kumari literally means “virgin” in Nepali. These living goddesses are young, pre-pubescent girls who are considered to be incarnations of the Hindu goddess of power, Kali.
