Introduction to Gasti

According to the Genealogy of Daniel Wright, Gasti was the last King of the Kirat Dynasty who ruled over Nepal.

The Geneology has posited that Gasti was the 29th King of the Kirat Dynasty and the son of King Patuka who ruled over Nepal.

Moreover, Geneology claims that his Father had to abdicate the Palace of Gokarna and establish another Palace.

Likewise, the genealogy maintains that Gasti was attacked with ferocity by the Kings of the Soma Dynasty. Therefore, he fled from the New Palace that was built 4 kilometers south of Gokarna.

Then, the Genealogy theorized that the Soma Dynasty built a Palace near Godavari and Nimikha became the First Soma King of Nepal.

However, the Gopal Raja Bansawali and Bhasa Bansawali haven’t endorsed Gasti as amongst the Kirat Kings that ruled over Nepal.


Note: The Prehistory of Nepal up to the Kirat Dynasty lacks sufficient evidence to ensure its reliability. The article has been written through the consolidation of Chronologies with minimum interpretation to preserve its Historiographical Accuracy. In the case of Further Evidence coming into Light, it needs to be posited that the Chronologies themselves have solely inspired the materials of the Article.
