Where the Kumari or the “living goddess” lives.

This white three storey building has intricately carved windows and balconies and its entrance is guarded by stone lions.
The selection of the Living Goddess is a highly elaborate tantric ritual. her days in the god-house come to an end with her first menstruation, but if she turns out to be unlucky, as they say, even a minor scratch on her body that bleeds can make her invalid for worship.
