Gurkhas are people from Nepal

Gurkhas, are people from Nepal who take their name from the eighth century Hindu warrior-saint Guru Gorakhnath.

His disciple Bappa Rawal, born Prince Kalbhoj/Prince Shailadhish, founded the house of Mewar, Rajasthan (Rajputana). Later descendants of Bappa Rawal moved further east to found the house of Gorkha, which in turn founded the Kingdom of Nepal. Gorkha District is one of the 75 districts of modern Nepal.
