Nepal Hindu Festival

Nepalese Hindu priests perform rituals during Janai purnima festival in Kathmandu, Nepal, Thursday, Aug. 15, 2019. Janai Purnima or the annual Sacred Thread Festival marks the day when the devout Hindu males change the white cotton thread they wear across their torsos and take a ritual bath in a river or a pond. The sacred thread, when it first tied, indicates formal entry into adulthood and a promise to follow their Hindu faith. (AP Photo/Niranjan Shrestha)
