The Gadhimai festival, which happens once every five years, is taking place in Bariyapur in southern Nepal.
Over the next two days more than a quarter of a million animals are expected to be slaughtered for Gadhimai - a goddess of power.
Sacrifice is a seen as a way of thanking the deity for good luck, or asking her for fortune and prosperity.
