The Buddhist construction of Kumari Bahal.

Durbar Square, Kathmandu

This white three storey building has intricately carved windows and balconies and its entrance is guarded by stone lions.
The selection of the Living Goddess, Kumari(who passes to be a incarnation of Durga), is a highly elaborate tantric ritual. Her days in the god-house come to an end with her first menstruation, but if she turns out to be unlucky, as they say, even a minor scratch on her body that bleeds can make her invalid for worship.
