The culture of Nepal includes the codes of manners, dress, language, rituals, norms of behavior and systems of belief. The culture of Nepal is a unique combination of tradition and change. The traditions are followed as they were and new customs are created to keep pace with the changing times. The land is rich with diverse cultural groups like Tharu, Yadav, Ahir, Newars and others.
