Introduction to Mugaman

King Mugaman was the 26th King of the Kirat Dynasty who reigned over Nepal as recorded in the Gopal Raja Bansawali. The text mentions that Mugaman ruled over Nepal for 58 years.  

Furthermore, Gopal Raja Bansawali posited that he was the successor of King Tyapami and ruled Nepal two generations after Puska. Later, Mugaman, himself was succeded by King Sasaru.

The Genealogy translated by Daniel Wright has completely omitted the name of King Mugaman.

The Bhasa Bansawali also fails to mention Mugaman as one of the Kings of the Kirat Dynasty.

Similarly, the Chronology of Kirat Kings Prescribed by William Kirkpatrick doesn’t refer to him as one of the Kings.

It is only the Gopal Raja Bansawalu that alludes to King Mugaman.


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.
