by wowmagazine

Book launch of ‘The Legend of Machig and The Birth of Kathmandu’, a historical painting about how Bodisattva Manjushree formed Kathmandu valley took place on April 30 at the Kathmandu Guest House in Thamel.

The Legend of Machig intertwines elements of ancient, sacred scriptures- specifically the Swayambhu Puran in a fantasy world. The book is written by Luke Davis and illustrated by Ratna Sagar Shrestha.

A painting that depicts the main characters who were involved in the formation of the valley: Manjushree, his two wives, his disciple Dharmakara who was crowned as the first king of Kathmandu and Nagaraj Karkotaka who agreed to shift the entire Nag population to Taudaha is done by Rajani Sinkhwal under the guidance of Samundra Man Singh Shrestha and conceptualised by Shaguni Singh Sakya.
