How old is Nepal ?
Old Nepal, Nepal has existed since about 5000 years ago. It is not based on any caste, it is a country based on geography. That is why the people living here first consider themselves Nepali and their caste. There is a history of Licchavis living here for thousands of years, there are Khashas living here, there were Kirats, all of them lived in here .It is not the name of any caste, it is the name of pure geography and within this geography, various castes, various religions and cultural traditions are living. Nepal has never been an ethnic state or a religious state.
The existence of it in South Asia is very old. Bishal Nepal had only its neighbors like Kramas Gandhar, Panchal, Kuru etc. The country existed 900 years before AD. Maurya has a history of removing the Nanda dynasty of King Dhan Nanda in a place called Pataliputra, establishing a Gupta dynasty in that place and helping Chandra Gupta to become king.
The other two kingdoms at that time were Chera [Madras] Magat; the kingdom was when Ashoka came to Nepal after the establishment of the Gupta dynasty and he started building the Ashoka Pillar at Lumbini in honor . After that, Ashoka came to Kathmandu, the then capital . He was accompanied by his daughter. Ashoka married his daughter Charumati to the King of Nepal. The monastery built by Charumati for worship is now called Charumati Bihar and is now called Chabahil.
A map appears around 350 AD, which has been the subject of research. Nepal’s intellectuals and historians need to do a thorough research on this subject and put pressure on it to be included in Nepal’s curriculum.
At that time Nepal was ruled by the Kirats. At the same time, the Licchavis came to Nepal from Baishali and removed the Kirats. Etc. Around 625 A.D., the same Licchavika Mawli Thakurs were removed.The then Nepali king Narendra Dev fled to Tibet and took refuge in Tibet and re-established the Licchavi rule in 640 AD with the help of Tibet. After that, the unification of Nepal started in the Lichhavi period. From 650-700 BCE, the Licchavi Kalin kings united the territory east of Sinja and the territory west of Kramus Nepal, and the border of Nepal from Jammu and Kashmir to Jalpaiguri became Nepal’s territory.
During this time, the border of Nepal was maintained up to Kamakhya Kamaruksha-[Burmaputra] river .It was a Baishali kingdom. After the unification of this kingdom with Nepal, Champaran and Betiya also merged into Nepal. Thus, Nepal has become huge. Meanwhile, around the 11th century, anarchy spread in the neighboring kingdom of Greater Nepal and with the end of the Gupta dynasty, about 1000 small brown Takure kingdoms were established.
The same effect was felt in Nepal. The Licchavi rule was weakened. The king here at that time was Mandev. The feudal lord of Kathmandu was Ansubarma. Kathmandu was the capital . The feudal lord of this capital was Anshuvarma. The center could not stop everyone from declaring themselves independent. As a result, It was divided into different sections. After the partition, the state called Nepal was limited to the valley. That is why it was called Nepal. After Nepal was limited to the valley, it was also divided into Kantipur, Bhaktapur, Kirtipur and other states.
Gorkha is one of the 50th states of Nepal divided in this way. The poor state of Gorkha was reunited by King Prithivinarayan Shah. We were also unable to save.
The existence of Nepal in South Asia is very old. Bishal Nepal had only its neighbors like Kramas Gandhar, Panchal, Kuru etc. The country called Nepal existed 900 years before AD. Maurya has a history of removing the Nanda dynasty of King Dhan Nanda in a place called Pataliputra, establishing a Gupta dynasty in that place and helping Chandra Gupta to become king.
While reading half of the history, it was said that Nepal is only a valley. So the intellectuals of present day Nepal; Historians need to do more detailed research and make the true facts of the reality public, otherwise those who already know it may give the illusion that the Terai does not belong to Nepal.
The origin of the word ‘Nepal’
The origin of the word ‘Nepal’ is not so clear. The oldest and most reliable experiment is found in the Allahabad column of Emperor Samudragupta (335-475), which refers to the king of Nepal bowing to the emperor.The earliest mention is found in the Tistung settlement on the way to and from the valley: ‘Swasti to the ruler of Nepal’.Of course, ‘Nepal’ is found in abundance in the classical writings of India, as in the so-called Vedic Atharva Appendix, in Kautilya’s Arthashastra, in some editions of the Mahabharata, in some Buddhist and Jain texts. But even when ‘Nepal’ is used in these documents, the origin of the word and how old the use is cannot be ascertained.
If we look at the documents within Nepal, we do not find the definition of ‘Nepal’ in the ‘Gopal Dynasty’ of 1300 AD and other genealogies of the same time, but in the later local genealogy (mainly 1820-1880) we find the interpretation and analysis of the name ‘Nepal’. . In these later Hindu and Buddhist documents, it is claimed that the origin of ‘Nepal’ was either from a cow named Ne Muni or from an Adibuddha of the same name.
History Shiromani Baburam Acharya initially thought that ‘Nepal’ was a corruption of the old name ‘Nepar’ but later he also came up with the word ‘Newar’ as culturalization.This conclusion is also credible because we find the non-Sanskrit origin of the names of rivers, canals, thumka, tar, chaur etc. found in the old records of Nepal. Studies of the names of many rivers and their distortions have shown that Tibetan-Burmese names have been cultured.
