HISTORY OF THE KATHMANDU VALLEY
The Kathmandu Valley may have been inhabited as early as 300 BCE, since the oldest known objects in the valley date to a few hundred years BCE. The earliest known inscription is dated 185 CE. The oldest firmly dated building in the earthquake-prone valley is almost 1,992 years old. Four stupas around the city of Patan, said to have been erected by a certain Charumati, a purported daughter of Ashoka the Great, a Mauryan king, in the 3rd century BCE, attest to the ancient history present within the valley. As with the tales of the Buddha’s visit, there is no evidence supporting Ashok’s visit, but the stupas probably do date to that century. The Kirats are the first documented rulers of the Kathmandu Valley; the remains of their palace are said to be in Patan near Hiranyavarna Mahavihara (called “Patukodon”).
HISTORY OF POKHARA VALLEY:
History Of PokharaDuring the 17th century, the Shah Dynasty as part of the Kingdom of Kaski ruled Pokhara. In the mid 18th century the town took on added importance as a commercial centre given its location right in the middle of the old trade route between India and Tibet. Later, the British set up a recruitment camp to enlist soldiers, the likes of which attracted people from the surrounding areas. This further bolstered the town's position as a hub for the surrounding valleys. As time passed the changes in the trade relations between India and China resulted in the significance of Pokhara as a trading post to diminish. However, the town took on a new role in 1959 as a transit hub for many Tibetan refugees who fled Tibet for India following its annexation by China. The Tibetan community has maintained a presence in the city since the 1960’s functioning as a transit hub for many to this day.
HISTORY OF CHITWAN NATIONAL PARK:
Then, in 1950, everything began to change. A popular revolt by the people of Nepal brought about the collapse of the Rana regime, and with it the end of the big hunts. In the hills the economic situation had been deteriorating for several decades. The population grew so fast that people ran out of land on which to grow crops. In desperation, the land-hungry farmers began to venture down into the plains, the new government felt obliged to open Chitwan for settlement.
In December 1970, His late Majesty King Mahendra approved the establishment of the national park south of the Rapti river. The boundaries were delineated in March and April of 1971, and preliminary development began in October that year. Chitwan National Park was officially gazetted in 1973 by His Majesty King Birendra and became the first national park in Nepal.
