What people are saying:

After dinner, go to Kadu Durbar Square, which consists of Bashtabor Square in the south, Durbar Square in the west, and Kurt Square in the north. There are many temples, which are similar to the Durbar Square in Badgang and Patan. Because they have seen a lot, they are tired of aesthetics and are no longer interested in the same temples. But the goddess courtyard left a deep impression on me. The goddess who lives in the world, Kumari, is enshrined here, she is the incarnation of the goddess carefully selected by the world. According to the regulations, the goddess can only be selected from the 2-3 year old girls of the Sakyamuni family in Kathmandu. They must not have scars or bleed through their bodies. They meet 32 characteristics and become a living goddess after a secret examination. The goddess only shows her face in the window on the third floor at a specific time. She can't show any expression in front of anyone. Therefore, all people can see are the majesty of the god and the calmness and indifference that is not commensurate with her age. . It is said that the goddess no longer shows up at the window, and we have not seen the goddess living in the world, but the architecture and wood carvings of the goddess courtyard are very delicate.
