Dakshinkali

     Located along a river in a forested valley in the mountains south of the Valley, Dakshinkali is a temple dedicated to the Shiva's consort goddess Kali in her most bloodthirsty incarnation. At this temple, her bloodlust is satisfied twice a week when people come to sacrifice uncastrated male goats, buffaloes, chickens, and other such animals. The image of Kali at the shrine is of black stone, has six arms, and is trampling a male figure. When major festivals roll around, like Dasain, the temple becomes awash with blood, and thus it becomes quite a tourist attraction.
