The distinct type of culture of Muslim Newar community is Newar Islam.

History[edit]

The history dates back to Nepal Sambat 470 when Sultan Shamsuddin Ilyas Shah attacked Nepal Mandala.[citation needed] In the process the Muslims entered Newar villages. The Malla king gave them a small area of land for Muslims to live. Thus they continued their culture and religion and formed a new type of group known as Newar Islam. [1]
