Vehicle of the Living Goddess, Indra Jatra Festival, Kathmandu

This is the vehicle of the Kumari of Kathmandu, the Living Goddess, during Indra Jatra, the day that she traditionally gives blessings to the King. It is being protected by the police and preceded by a spirit-possessed dancer. I was pushed into the middle of a fist fight in front of the cart and then almost run over by the cart itself. 9/14/08 - Indra Jatra Luke Lindemann
