Some 300 years ago, the kingdom of Nepal was divided into small States and Kingdom. The rulers had no unity among themselves. They often quarreled with one another for territorial integrity and sovereignty. The Kathmandu valley itself was divided into three kingdoms - Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan. There was a strong need to consolidate of all these states into a Nation.The great king Prithvi Narayan Shah of Gorkha kingdom holds the credit for this consolidation of small kingdoms into Nepal. Prithvi Narayan Shah was brave, clever, and courageous from his childhood. When Prithvi Narayan Shah was small he was playing a game. When he was playing he saw a cave and went there. There he met an old man who asked him for some yogurt. The boy went to nearby houses and brought some yogurt. The old man swallowed all the yogurt and when there was a little left in his mouth, he asked the boy to stretch out his hand. He spat a little yogurt into the boy's hand and told him to eat that yogurt. The boy did not like to eat it and threw it away immediately. The yogurt from his hand happened to fall on his feet. Then the old man said, "If you had eaten that yogurt you would vave succeede in what you speak of, but since the yogurt fell on your feet, you will conquer the lands that your feet tread upon". Saying so, the old man vanished. It is said that the old man was no other than Gorakhanath himself. With the help of the blassing and with his strength he unified the Nepal.

Kumari is known as living the Living God Of Nepal. The Kumari is a young girl who lives in the building known as the Kumari Ghar right beside the Kathmandu's Durbar Square. Kumari is the part of both Hinduism and Buddhism, a tradition which continues even to this day virtually in every household. They call this girl Kumari Devi and worship her on all the religious occasions. On Indra Jatra, in September, the Living Goddess in all her jeweled splendor travels through the older part of Kathmandu city in a three tiered chariot accompanied by Ganesh and Bhairab each day for three days. It is really a grand gala in which people in their thousands throng in and around the Kathmandu Durbar Square to pay their homage to the Living Goddess.

Lumbini is the place where the Buddha, known as the one who has found the truth was born. It is the place which should be visited and seen by a person of devotion and which should cause awareness and apprehension of the nature of impermanence.'
The birthplace of the Gautama Buddha, Lumbini, is the Mecca of every Buddhist, being one of the four holy places of Buddhism. It is said in the Parinibbana Sutta that Buddha himself identified four places of future pilgrimage: the sites of his birth, enlightenment, first discourse, and death. All of these events happened outside in nature under trees. While there is not any particular significance in this, other than it perhaps explains why Buddhists have always respected the environment and natural law.
