Overview

The Magars, The largest ethnic group (around 8% of the total population), are Tibeto-Burmese people who live in many parts of the midlands zone of western and central Nepal. They are also farmers and tend to work the lower parts of the hills. Their settlements are found over the southern part of the Dhauligari Himilayan Range and Eastwards to the Gandaki River.

The Magars are also excellent soldiers and fought with Prithvi Narayan Shah to help unify Nepal. Their kingdom of Palpa (based at Tansen) was one of the last to be incorporated into unified Nepal. They make up the biggest numbers of the Gurkhas under Nepal British and Indian Military.  The army salaries have greatly improved Magar's living standards.

The Magars are very rich in their culture. They are simple but famous for their bravery and friendly hospitality.  They are divided into seven different tribs like Ale, Buda, Gharti, Pun Magar, Rana, Roka, Thapa Magars. The Magars generally live in two-story, rectangular, or square thatched houses washed in red clay. They have been heavily influenced by Hinduism and Buddhism. Bhangra and Bhoto for men and Lungi cholo for women are the traditional customs of Magars. Maruni, Kauda, Salaijo dance of Magars are very famous in Nepal.
