Sacred Fires

The five fire urns were located near the South end of Kathmandu Durbar Square. A woman would place the end of the stick into each of the five urns then let the smoke pouring off the stick wash over them then hand the stick to another woman. It appeared to me to be some sort of purification rite or blessing rite however I was not able to find information to confirm my assessment.
