"Kathmandu is smelly, crowded,..." Kathmandu Tip by johis
Kathmandu, Nepal: 62 reviews and 112 photos
Kathmandu is smelly, crowded, spiritual, friendly, loud and fascinating! The old center of the city is Durbar square, a place filled with temples and monuments. This is also where the Living Goddess, Kumari, lives. She is chosen through quite frightening ceremonies as a 4-5 year-old and will continue her duties as goddess until she reaches puberty. Then she is thrown out and a new one is chosen. The life for an ex goddess used to be very hard, since the legend says that a man who marries an ex Goddess will die young!
