Nepal Culture

» Religion is the livelihood of the Nepalese. Officially it is a Hindu country. Your first impressions of Nepal might leave you speechless: the abundance of temples, monasteries, and other religious structures, the number of people and animals shoveling and squeezing through narrow lanes. The culture of Nepal is truly exceptional. Nowhere on world can you find a way of life like in Nepal.

This is somewhat because of Nepal 's geography and partly because of its era. Nepal has been an ordered society for at least 1,500 years, and people have been living in Nepal 's Kathmandu Valley for another 2,000 years. Nepal 's location between northeast India and southwest China puts it in the middle of an important Asian trade route. Both of these reasons helped outline new Nepalese culture.

» A serious part of Nepalese life is religion, and the majority in Nepal practice Hinduism. Hinduism and Buddhism comprise two chief religions of Nepal . A extraordinary feature of Nepal is the religious liberty what exists, mostly between the Hindu and Buddhist Communities. Apart from the Hindus and Buddhists, Muslim from the third largest religious group. The beautiful medieval Art & Architecture of the Kathmandu Valley brightly echo the artistic originality and the religious custom of the people. The Gurungs and Magars live mainly in the west. The Rais, Limbus and Sunuwars inhabits the slopes and valleys of the Eastern mid hills. The Sherpas live in the Himalayan region. The Newars constitute an important ethnic group of the capital valley Kathmandu.
