To understand a bit about the history of Nepal.The Mallas, the Ranas and the Shah ruled Nepal for hundreds of years. It was divided into small kingdoms ruled by influential rulers. However, it was difficult for the citizens of Nepal to live a peaceful life because of the threat from other neibhouring states.
Prithivi Narayan Shah from Shah Dynasty became a prominent figure from the Shah dynasty who conquered the entire small kingdom and unified it as one Nepal. He is also known as the father of Nation because of his love for his country and people. Although Nepal had been a Hindu country for hundreds of years, Buddhism has had a great influence in the lives of Nepalese people. Gautam Buddha was born in a place called Lumbini in Nepal.
