Nepal Heritage

Nepal heritage

» Nepal's diverse linguistic heritage evolved from three major language groups: Indo-Aryan , Tibeto-Burman , and indigenous . Nepal is divided into 14 zones (anchal, singular and plural): Bagmati , Bheri, Dhawalagiri, Gandaki, Janakpur, Karnali, Koshi, Lumbini , Mahakali, Mechi, Narayani , Rapti , Sagarmatha and Seti.

 

» Nepal has a long history that has extended for millennia. The Kirati  are one of the first Nepali groups known to historians, having migrated from the east in the 7th  or 8th century BC . Lord Gautam Buddha  was born in Lumbini , Nepal circa 500 BC  and the Emperor Asoka  ruled over a vast empire including North India and southern Terai region of present day Nepal (though the hilly and mountainous regions were not a part of Asoka's Empire) in the 1st century BC . By 200  AD, the Buddhist empire was displaced by resurgent Hindu fiefdoms such as the Licchavi dynasty.

 

» The small area of Nepal holds a considerably high number of places recognized by UNESCO as "World Heritage Sites". There are all together ten World Heritage Sites in Nepal , seven of which are in Kathmandu itself.
