The story behind this photograph of the Kumari
I’ve already documented this in a series of articles. However as a recap in 2007 I’d heard of the Kumari but was not able to visit her. Upon returning to Nepal I made this a priority. Along the way spending time with people in Kathmandu, Bakthapur and Patan on my search.
However once I did find and meet with the Kumari I was taken back by own discoveries. From a revered symbol to simply being confronted by a little girl called Samita I found something much better than just a photograph.

Don’t take a tour to visit the Kumari
There are plenty of tour companies in Nepal trying to profit on the Kumari tradition. You do not need to pay to visit the Kumari! The tour companies do not give these excessive profits to the Kumari family at all.
You can visit the Kumar easily and independently.
