The beautiful country of Nepal possesses Earth’s highest mountain, Mt. Everest, which is located in the Himalayas. Nepal is also home to the plain fertile land of Terai, fusion of different ethnic and caste groups with their own traditions, cultures, languages, and values handed down from generation to generation. It is believed that the legendary Majipat Lakhe arrived from South India in the 11th century with goddess Taleju Bhawani. The goddess is worshipped as Shanta Bhairav in a festival called Indra Jatra;it is one of Nepal’s intangible cultural heritages, specifically attributed to the Newar community.
