Sankhu, is a village in the Kathmandu valley with about 2000 inhabitants and is located about 17 km east of Kathmandu. Sankhu was the terminal of the old trade route to Tibet.

The Kumari of Sankhu shows up in the public far less than the Kumaris of Kathmandu, Lalitpur or Bhaktapur. In addition she has a special head decoration, which is adorned with the Pancha Buddha (5 Buddha) and is probably unique in this form.
