302nd Prithvi Jayanti celebrations across Nepal

KATHMANDU: Today, Nepal reverberates with celebratory fervor as the nation commemorates the 302nd Prithvi Jayanti, honoring the birth anniversary of the eminent leader, Prithvi Narayan Shah. Born on the 27th day of the Nepali month of Poush in 1779 BS in Gorkha to King Narabhupal Shah and Queen Kaushalyavati, Prithvi Narayan Shah holds a significant place in the history of Nepal.

Prithvi Narayan Shah ascended to the throne on Chaitra 25, 1799 BS, a period when Nepal was fragmented into 52 principalities. His visionary leadership played a crucial role in unifying the diverse territories of the country. Under his reign, the borders of Nepal expanded from the Tista River in the east to the Chepe River in the west.

In 1801 BS, Prithvi Narayan Shah conquered Nuwakot, and in a historic conquest in 1826 BS, he secured the Kathmandu Valley. His successors continued the legacy, further expanding Nepal to the fort of Kangada in the west.

Today’s celebrations are a tribute to Prithvi Narayan Shah’s monumental efforts in uniting Nepal, transcending caste and language barriers. The Rastriya Prajatantra Party is at the forefront, organizing various programs that reflect on Prithvi Narayan Shah’s enduring legacy and his contribution to the nation’s unification.

As the nation unites to honor Prithvi Narayan Shah, the 302nd Prithvi Jayanti becomes a momentous occasion, symbolizing the enduring spirit of unity and diversity that defines the rich history and cultural tapestry of Nepal.
