Indra Jatra

Indra Jatra also known as kumari Jatra. History also tells a tale that the festival was to honor Bhairab, a manifestation of Shiva, who is believed to destroy evil. Indra Jatra is an eight day festival. Music and laughter plays a big part in Indra Jatra. The festival usually kicks off from Kathmandu Durbar Square with several groups of tribal and local musicians arriving into the main area. It is believed Indra received this flag from Lord Vishnu for protection. People dressed as demons enter the square and reenact mythical fights between the creatures. Finally after the dignitaries get their blessings the Living Goddesses (Kumari) enter the square in their special rope drawn chariots.
