Yeny? in lockdown: Silent celebration of miniature Kumari, Pulukishi


A representative idol of the Living Goddess Kumari is placed inside a miniature chariot on Wednesday. Kumari Jatra, the chariot procession of the Kumari -- one of the most sought-after events during Yeny? -- will be missed this year as pandemic-lockdown in the valley prohibits people from gathering for events.

Also seen in the pictures is the Pulukishi 'White Elephant' which is believed to be the vehicle of Lord Indra.
