Heads are Rolling
We arrived in Kathmandu just as the festival of Dasain began. During the festival, Hindus perform a series of animal sacrifices at temples and shrines all over the city. Chickens, goats, and water buffaloes are all losing their heads faster than the tourists can cringe and say “gross” – only the holy cows are safe.
In Durbar Square, 108 buffaloes and goats were beheaded to please the gods. Special bleacher seating was set up for tourists to enjoy the event!!!
