About : 

  • Born on January 7, 1723, His Majesty King Prithivi Narayan Shah is one of the greatest figures of Nepalese History. The emergence of Nepal as a united Himalayan Kingdom owes its origin mainly to his lifelong efforts. He unified numerous principalities and narrow ethnic groups into the modern nation-State, we see today. A grateful Nation pays respectful homage to him.
