Religion of Nepal Travel Nepal Blog

In Nepal, Hinduism and Buddhism are two major religions. They have coexisted over the centuries, and many Hindu temples share the same complex connection as Buddhist shrines. Hindus and Buddhist worshipers can believe in the same god, representing him during religious ceremonies with different names.

Nepal was proclaimed a secular country by Parliament on May 18, 2006 . Religions such as Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, Christianity, and Bon are practiced here. Some of the earliest residents, such as Kirata ( Kirats ), practice their own form of religion based on the worship of ancestors and animism Tharus ( Tharus ). Over the years, Hinduism and Buddhism have been influenced by these methods, which have been modified to form a synthesis of newer beliefs.

For many centuries, Nepal remained divided into many principalities. Kirata ( Kirats ) ruled in the east, Nyuvory ( Newars ) in the Kathmandu Valley , while Gurung ( Gurungs ) and Magara ( Magars ) won the Midwest. Kirata ( Kirats ) ruled since the year 300 BC and during their reign of emperor Ashoka arrived from India to build a pillar in Lumbini ( Lumbini ) in memory of Lord Buddha. Kirata shifted Lichchhavis ( Lichchhavis ), descendants which today are considered to Nyuvory ( Newars ) Kathmandu Valley. During this period, art flourished in Nepal, many beautiful wood carvings and sculptures found in the country belong to this era. With the end of Lichchhavi (Dynasty Lichchhavi ), kings Mala ( Malla ) came to power in 1200 AD, and they also made a significant contribution to the art and culture of Nepal. However, after almost 600 years of their rule, the kings were not united among themselves and during the late 18th century, Prithvi Narayan ( Prithvi Narayan ) Shah, King of Gorkha ( the Gorkha ), conquered Kathmanduand united Nepal into one kingdom. Recognizing the threat of British Power in India, he drove European missionaries out of the country and for more than a century, Nepal remained in isolation. During the mid-19th century, Zhong Bahader Rana became Nepal's first prime minister. He established an oligarchy, and the kings of Shah remained nominal rulers. Ranas ( Ranas ) were toppled during the democratic movements in the early 1950s.
