In Pictures: Living god Ganesh stays home during Indrajatra this year


Living 'boy god' Ganesh is seen sitting on his throne on Tuesday as Indrajatra is observed 'quietly' amid pandemic lockdwn. The festivities are low-key this year as the authorities have clamped a curfew-like shutdown in the three districts keeping in mind the sharp spike in coronavirus cases in the Kathmandu valley.

Although Kumari is the more-known deity, living manifestations of Ganesh and Bhairab are also worshipped along with the living goddess during Indrajatra in Kathmandu Valley.
