Indrajatra, an extraordinary fiesta

September 25, 2018 12:45 pm

Indrajatra is one of the most remarkable festivals of Kathmandu. The significance of this carnival lies in its famous masked dances, folk drama, and chariot processions. Living goddess Kumari is brought out during the festival from her abode in a beautifully decorated chariot. This event occurs only once a year, during this festival. The head of state and the head government also receive blessings from the deity, considered to be an embodiment of Taleju Bhawani. Lord Bhairav and Ganesha, along with Kumari are charioted across the city.
