History of Nepal begins with the Lichhavi who came to power in 400 AD. With them the nation began to prosper in art, culture, painting, architecture and sculptures. The Malls who succeeded them gave a new turn to this prosperity by transforming the small Kingdoms of Kathmandu, Patan and Bhaktapur into "open air museum of Art and Architecture".
The most exhilarating titles with which Nepal has been admired and praised by various renowned travel authors in recognition of her cultural richness, viz., Living cultural Museum, Shangri-la, Roof of the World, Birth place of the Apostle of Peace, Country of Living Goddess, City of Golden Pagodas & Parasols, Himalayan Pilgrimage, Wildest Dream of Kew, Nature amphitheater, melting pot of Hinduism & Buddhism, A tiny Kingdom of thirty-six ethnic groups & seventy-five spoken languages, Birth place of Sita, Abode of Shiva, Land of Mysticism & Exoticism, Land of non-stop festivals etc. are explicit and self explanatory. They tell the world about our incomparable & prosperous cultural heritage.
