Those days Indra Jatra used to be Kathmandu’s one of major festivals and it used to attract people outside the valley as well. The tradition is so widely famous and live music played a huge role in it. The main attraction was the chariot where Nepal’s living Goddess named KUMARI is carried through the streets and even the King and devotees used to pay homage.
