Talking with children of King Prithvi Narayan Shah’s soldiers

Prithvi Narayan Shah became king of Nepal in 1742 AD. After his succession, he started attacking several small princedoms. He recruited several Magars into his army. With this mission, he quickly defeated several princedoms surrounding the Kathmandu valley. After his third attempt, he succeeded in defeating Kirtipur, a formidable kingdom in his third attempt. With this victory, he was able to defeat the other three kingdoms—Kathmandu, Lalitpur, and Bhaktapur. After the war, he began to stay in Kathmandu durbar. His army also stayed with him to protect his kingdom. The Magars also stayed behind with him. Magar Studies Center organized get-together programs with the children of those soldiers.
