Offerings dropped from the mouth of Swet Bhairav of Hanuman Dhoka were fed only to women on Tuesday night. Every day during the eight-day long Indrajatra, after evening worship, alcohol is poured from the pipe placed in the mouth of Shweta Bhairav as an offering. A crowd of women had gathered to eat Prasad on Tuesday night.
Until a few years ago, all men and women were allowed to eat prasad every day. However, after the complaint that women are deprived of Prasad and due to the crowd of men, a day has been set aside for women only.
