Every Tuesday and Saturday at the Dakshinkali Temple just outside Kathmandu, Nepal pilgrims come to make blood sacrifices of chickens, goats and sometimes buffalo to the Goddess Kali. After the sacrifice the animal is brought to the butcher at the other end of the temple grounds where skilled butchers skin and de-bone the carcass and families then join together in the surrounding green areas for a picnic.
