In Nepal, the Kumari (the living virgin goddess) is regarded as personification of the Goddess Taleju. She sits on her throne with her attendants and is always dressed in red, there's always third eye on her painted red forehead. She is considered as manifestation of divine female energy.
As a female goddess, she possesses power like that of Taleju (Durga), the divine universal-mother goddess.
Devotees believes she will bring them good luck in their lives.
These are some of the photographs I took on the 8th day of the Hindu festival Dashain.
