An adorned Newar girl has lipstick applied to her lips by her mother during an Ihi ceremony in Kathmandu...
An adorned Newar girl has lipstick applied to her lips by her mother during an Ihi ceremony in Kathmandu January 28, 2012. In the ceremony, girls are married to Bel, the fruit of a wood-apple tree, before reaching puberty. Ihi is a two-day ceremony which begins with purification rituals and ends with "Kanyadan" (giving away the virgin) of the girl by her father. A Newar girl will be married thrice in her life, first to Bel, a second time with the sun in another ritual, and lastly with her future husband later in life.
