More on Nepali Calendar
King Chandragupt Vikramaditya, who was the then Hindu king of Ujjain (currently in Rajasthan, India), started a new calendar, and gave it his own name, (B)Vikram. ‘Sambat’, which means era in English, is used for any Calendar system in Sanskrit. So, the name of the calendar was developed as Vikram Sambat. With the development of relationship between Vikramaditya and Lichchhavi kings of Nepal via marriage, the calendar system was brought to Nepal. Since then, it was used in Nepal by the further generation of Kings for various purposes, until it was replaced by Sakha sambat in the Rana regime. But the Ranas again restored the Vikram Sambat Calendar in 1958, and since then it is used and known as official Nepali Calendar.
It is also believed that since in around 58 BC (when the Vikram Sambat Calendar was started), there was no any existence of King Chandragupta Vikramaditya in India. So, the calendar may have been started and solely developed by the Lichchhavi kings of Nepal. That means, it was Mandev, the then king of Nepal who started the Nepali Calendar.
