Come and explore Nepal having rich traditions of art, culture and heritage. Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal is a treasure house of ancient art and culture.

Nepal has seen many rulers and ruling dynasties. The earliest rulers  were the Kirantis who ruled from 9th century B.C. to 1st century A.D.  Legends and chronicles mention that the Indian Emperor Ashoka had come  to Nepal and visited Lumbini, the place where the Buddha was born, and  where he erected a huge stone pillar to commemorate his visit to that  spot.

The Kirants were replaced by Licchavis who, according to the earliest  evidences in inscriptions of the 5th century A.D. found in the courtyard  of Changunarayan temple which is about 15 km north east of Kathmandu,  ruled this country from 1st century to 9th century A.D. This period is  noted for the many temples and fine sculptures built around the  Kathmandu valley.

The Licchavis were followed by the Thakuris, and then came the Malla  dynasty. The Mallas ruled focusing mainly on the Kathmandu Valley which  has been the residence for most Nepali rulers from time immemorial. No  other part of Nepal is as rich in cultural heritage as Kathmandu. Thanks  to the exceptionally talented crafts-men, who dedicated themselves to  construct the many temples and statues, we have seven world heritage  sites in the Kathmandu Valley itself.

In the 14th century A.D. King Jayasthiti Malla established a rigid  social order. His grandson tried in every way to protect his country  from suspected enemy states. Unfortunately, all his efforts were  fruitless, everything went beyond his control and the country eventually  divided up into 50 small feudal states including the three major ones  in the valley.

Then came the Shah dynasty, which prevails even today. King Prithvi  Narayan Shah, founder of Modern Nepal, who annexed small principalities  including three states in the Kathmandu Valley and unified Nepal in a  single kingdom. Recognizing the threat of the British Raj in India, he  dismissed European missionaries from the country and for more than a  century, Nepal remained in isolation.

During the mid-19th century Jung Bahadur Rana became Nepal’s first prime  minister to wield absolute power. He set up an oligarchy and the Shah  Kings remained figureheads.

The Ranas  were overthrown in a democracy movement of the early 1950s. Today, Nepal  enjoys a multiparty democratic system with a constitutional Monarch.
