    In Nepal, religion is not just a set of beliefs and accompanying rituals handed down from generation to generation; rather it is a complex intermingling of traditions, festivals, faiths and doctrines that have permeated every strata of Nepalese Society in such a way as to become the very heartbeat of the nation.

    Nepal is famous, as the world's only Hindu Kingdom. However, it is an intricate and beautiful tapestry formed by the interweaving of Hinduism, Buddhism and other beliefs. Religious tolerance and harmony such as is found in Nepal, is perhaps a unique example to the world.

    Religions in Nepal are:

    1. Hinduism

    2. Buddhishm

    3. Tantrism

    4. Islam and Christianity

    Nepal, home of the Gurkha's, who were declared a martial race by the British (sometime in the 18 hundreds i think) Martial race meaning that the people are naturally war like and fierce, capable of hard work for long periods of time. The Gurkha's worship a Hindu warrior saint, Known as Guru Gorakshanath. who you can read about here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guru_Gorakhnath

    Gurkahs are known for their excellence as warriors - they are also known for their generosity and friendly nature.
