In Pictures: Living god Ganesh stays home during Indrajatra this year
KATHMANDU, SEPTEMBER 1
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.
