Devotees take a 'holy bath'

Nepalese devotees, including adults and children, take a 'holy bath' during a 22-tap-fair at Balaju in Kathmandu, capital of Nepal. Thousands of local devotees flocked the area on April 25, for spiritual purification and in the belief  the 'holy bath' would cure them of their various diseases.
