Kathmandu valley (1310m)
populated present Kingdom City of Nepal, the Kathmandu valley
was at the bottom of the big sea Tethyan Sea, thousands
years ago. A great sage Bipasi came to this valley from
South East Asia and he started to live in Nagarjun near
present Swoyambhu. He saw a dried lotus (seed) in the bank
of the sea in Nagarjun, he picked up the dried lotus and
threw to the sea. After six month, it started to come up
a unique flame in the sea and he (sage) saw a God on lotus
above the sea. He worshipped hard for a long time then the
God turned into a hillock that called Swoyambhunath. After
few weeks, Manjusri came to this valley to worship of Swoyambhu
with his many followers and they lived in Small Island of
Swoyambhu. The valley around the sea was lush green forest
with beautiful views. So Manjusri thought that it would
be the great if there were any clue to drain the water out
from the valley. He walked around the valley and found a
saddle part in Chovar and he cut the ridge with his magic
sword then it started to drain out the water from the sea
and remained a marshy fertile black alluvial soil in the
valley. He made a settlement in the valley and appointed
a king Dharmakar (who is the 1st king of Nepalese history)
then moved to China.
