The Kumari Bahal - The House of the Living Goddess.
A young girl lives here, who is selected as the living goddess
until she reaches puberty. She shows up at the balkony for
some seconds (of course no photos are allowed) and you are
allowed to see her only once. There's priest watching over this...
