How was Nepal - During Mahabharata Period? Who were from Nepal?

Nepal - During Mahabharata Period.


  • Virata Desam, 
  • Malla desam, 
  • Videha or Mithila desam during Mahabharata period, are now part of Nepal.


In Ramayana period, Goddess Sita Devi did her avatar in this land of videha(Mithila) desam.
This kingdom was ruled by king Janaka. Also called as Janakpur.
Sita is a Nepali Girl if we think of today.

During Mahabharatha period, these Nepal kings of virata, malla, videha desam, supported pandava.
The entire army, accepted the leadership of drupada and followed his advice.

  • Malla desam is situated near the bank of ganga river.
  • Malla desam is situated between virata and videha desam.

Pandava brothers during 13 year of exile period (vanavasa) in forest, had to stay hidden at the 13th year.
To hide themselves in this 13th year, they chose virata desa in Nepal to spend their last year.

Nepal is known for giving us Goddess Sita and protecting pandava brothers for a complete one year.

Elder brother Yudhishthira, assumed the identity of game entertainer to the king and called  himself "Kanka".

Bhima became a cook named "Ballava".
Arjuna became dance and music teacher as transgender "Brihannala" and dresses as a woman.
He taught dance to Virata king Daughter "uttara".
Uttara, Nepal princess later married Arjuna"s son "Abimanyu".

Nakula became a servant to take care of horses as "Granthika".
Sahadeva became a servant to take care of cows as "Tantipala".

Princess Draupadi became maid as "Sairandhri" or "malini" to queen Shudeshna.

Keechaka, the son and also commander of king Virata's armed forces. He had a lust for the maid Sairandhri (Draupadi).
Kichaka approached the queen, and inquired about Sairandhri. The queen who does not know the true identity of Sairandhri, and arranged a meeting with Draupati.
Draupati went to meet him and Kichaka tried to molest her.

Draupati pushed him and ran to the court of king Virata.
Kichaka chased her, caught and kicked her in the court of Virata in front of the king.
Yudhistra kept silent to ensure to complete this 1 year somehow and didn't revealed his identity.
Helpless draupati, reported this incident to bheema.
Bheema asked draupathi to invite keechaka to her place. Draupathi went again and informed keechaka to come to her place.
Bheema waiting for keechaka arrival, grabbed him and gave him powerful punch of 1000 elephant strength over his head.
With this blow, keechaka head went inside his stomach like a ball. Keechaka died on spot.

Keechaka was not a weak warrior himself.
To expand virata desam, he had several times defeated "susarma" the king of trikartha (today's Punjab).

The death of keechaka in mysterious way, raised doubts to susarma.

Susarma believed only bheema must have killed  keechaka, due to his tremendous power.

Hence, susarma informed duryodhana to initiate a war against virata desam.

Guru prince duryodhana, along with trikarta king susarma and karna surrounded the virata desa with a massive army.

Virata king, knowing the situation sent his army headed by his son "uttara kumar" to face the war.
Looking at the massive army and presence of all mighty kings and duryodhana, uttara kumar got frightened and return back to his palace.

Arjuna who has disguised himself as transgender, spoke to the king that he will ride the horse chariot, and will face the kuru army.
On the way, he took all his sastra, and astra and kept uttara kumar aside, fought single handedly to defeat the kuru army and saved the virata.

The defeat to a transgender, was shameful for duryodhana, karna and they returned back.
After completion of one year, pandava showed their identity to virata king.
Virata king apologized for them for keeping them as servants.
Yudhistra thanked him to give him a place to stay hidden during the whole 13th year.

Virata king, offered his daughter "uttara" to mighty Arjuna for marriage.
Arjuna politely refused the proposal by saying the relationship is more of teacher and student and can't marry.
He was wise enough to accept Uttara as her daughter in law and married her to his son "Abimanyu".


With this relationship, during Mahabharata war, entire virata desam (Nepal) stand behind pandava and fought for dharma.

On 1st day,
"Uttara Kumar" fought bravely in the war, and achieved Veer swarga.
He got killed by Madra desa (today punjab in pakistan side) king "salya" on same day.
Salya saluted Uttara Kumar bravery in his battle.

By seeing "Uttara Kumar" died in the battle, "swetha kumar" his younger brother angrily marched towards Salya.
Seeing this, Bhishma asked swetha kumara to fight with him.
During the fight, Bhishma killed swetha kumara as well on Day 1.

Day 1, was a great defeat for pandavas and virata king lost his both sons.
This defeat on Day 1, put Yudhistra in extreme worry due to heavy loss of his army men and prince of other kingdom.
He even started saying,
"Duryodhana will definitely going to win this battle with his massive army and powerful generals"

Sri krishna gave him confidence and asked him not to get disheartened with this defeat.

Day 2 was ended up in success for pandavas.

The war went for 2 weeks and on Day 15, Drona killed Virata king as well in the battle.

Thus Nepal stand behind the Dharma and fought against Duryodhana who was standing on Adharma.

Mahabharata war happened around 3000BC which is nearing the end of Dwapara Yuga.
Kali Yuga started around 3102BC.

After 3000 years, around 563BC Siddhartha the prince of Nepal and son of King Sudhdhodhana born. He born in lumbini, Nepal.
At his young Age, seeing a dead body, he got disinterested about his life that one day he has to die as well.
He dethrone his empire desire and went out in search of truth.
He roam around several places around nepal and Bihar.
Finally reached Bodh Gaya in Bihar which is 450KM away from lumbini, Nepal.
He attained clarity of his life purpose in bodh gaya in magadha desa (which is south bihar).

His teaching and philosophy became popular among people who were following Vedic Sanadana Dharma.
Many got attracted to Buddhism.

When Magadha King (Orissa) Ashoka adapted Buddhism, this resulted as a greatest mistake to let foreign invaders of islam and christians to enter Bharat and loot, enslave, and kill hindus and destroy more than 40000 prime temples across bharat from Afghan till south india after a few century.

Asoka made other kings to accept Buddhism which teach non violence and peace.
Santhana dharma gave these teaching only to brahmins.
But attracted towards this sanyasa principle, ashoka made all kings to adapt peace and non violence.

From 563BC till 947AD, Buddhism spreaded like wild fire.
Afghan was completely Buddhist country during that time.

Muslim invasion started around 947AD in Afghan which was a Buddhist country during that time ruled by Amir Suri.
All because of Ashoka who initiated this foolish religion conversion.

Buddhism failed in India due to this and people returned to their Sanathana Dharma.

Long live Hindus.
