A Nepalese girl dressed as the living goddess Kumari waits for Kumari puja at Hanuman Dhoka, Basantapur Durbar Square in Kathmandu, Sept 4, 2017. Girls under the age of 9 gathered for the Kumari puja, a tradition of worshiping young prepubescent girls as manifestations of the divine female energy. The ritual holds a strong religious significance in the Newar community that seeks divine blessings to save small girls from diseases and bad luck in the years to come. [Photo/IC]
