Throughout Nepal, there are several Kumaris, but the one most famous is the Kumari of Kathmandu. Selection of the Living Goddess is quite a tedious process, and the selected one is titled ‘Royal Kumari’ who lives in the Kumari Bahal which is located right in the center of Kathmandu. On a chosen day, the Royal Kumari comes out in the balcony to bless her worshippers.
