Shah Dynasty, reunification of Nepal. Due to this people marry in their caste and avoid same gotra. In Nepal, Shah is the family name of members of the royal family. Shah is the 111 th most frequent family name on a worldwide basis, borne by around 1 in 1,422 people. Shah is also the 774 th most frequently held first name globally. A shah is a ruler of certain Middle Eastern countries, especially Persia (now Iran), and derives from the Persian "shah", king. The surname Shah occurs predominantly in Asia, where 96 percent of Shah live; 93 percent live in South Asia and 74 percent live in Islamic South Asia. My name is Deep Shahi Thakuri. There is adequate proof of many thinsg in our history. I had been wondering for many days searching histories about the origin of the Thakuri people. The greater part of the problem is that through the reigns of Shah and Ranas. The Kingdom of Nepal (Nepali: नेपाल अधिराज्य), also known as the Kingdom of Gorkha or Gorkha Empire (Nepali: गोरखा अधिराज्य) or Asal Hindusthan (Real Land of Hindus), was a Hindu kingdom on the Indian subcontinent, formed in 1768, by the unification of Nepal. It is said that the great king of Nepal Prithibhi Narayan Shah(1723-75) went to Benaras, India and changed his Gotra from 'Bharadwaj' to 'Kasyap' to remain free from the sin of ‘Gotra Hatya’(killing of own clan) during unification of Nepal. Jahan Shah (see below) was Mogul emperor from 1628 to 1658. Gotra means subdivisions of the castes represent more close relations of family. Nepal as a state had committed a grave crime against humanity by the promulgation of a civil code called Muluki Ain in 1854 making statuary provisions of caste-based discrimination and untouchability practices. Every caste of indigenous group want to keeps such things in secret, at least to my knowledge. In fact, if anything, Nepal distilled the Hindu obsession with caste and sanctioned it through the state in an attempt to retain the “purity” of the “asal Hindu-sthan” Prithvi Narayan Shah desired. Hello everyone. The caste system defines social classes by a number of hierarchical endogamous groups often termed jaat. Some of the examples of the caste of Nepal are Brahmin, Chhetri, Thakuri, Badi, Gaine. This is same in the case of Shah of Nepal. conquered the various petty kingdoms in the territory that is now Nepal, the Shah rulers used the concept of the caste hierarchy as an organizing principle for consolidating the diverse peoples inhabiting Nepal into a nation state under their authority. Caste is broader term used to represent certain group of people like – poudel, basnet, neupane, khadka, shrestha etc. In many cases people get confused in Caste and Gotra. Prithvi Narayan Shah (c. 1779–1775), with whom we move into the modern period of Nepal’s history, was the ninth generation descendant of Dravya Shah (1559–1570), the founder of the ruling house of Gorkha. According to our great King Prithivi Narayan Shah, 'Nepal is a garden of 4 castes and 36 sub- castes'. In 1854, early in the period of Rana rule, a National Legal Code (Muluki Ain) was proclaimed Prithvi Narayan Shah succeeded his father King Nara Bhupal Shah to the throne of Gorkha in 1743 AD.
