KATHMANDU: The Kathmandu branch office of Guthi Sansthan has appointed a woman as a priest of Annapurna Narayan temple at Ason, Kathmandu.

Chief of Kathmandu branch office, Hari Prasad Subedi, said that they have appointed Sahanshila Jha to the post.

However, Jha is not the first woman priest, according to him.

Earlier, women priests were appointed at the temples including Panchadewal of Godavari, according to the Guthi Sansthan.

Shahanshila was appointed as a woman priest after her brother, Pramod, who was the priest at the temple, went abroad.

She was appointed to the post for a maximum of five years with a one-year probation period.
