Nepal is an independent Himalayan Kingdom located between India and the Tibetan region of China. For centuries, the history of Nepal was the struggle of rival chiefs for the consolidation of the surrounding area into a unified kingdom and its role as an asylum for refugees from the plains of India. Buddhism was introduced in about 639 AD.
