Hiraṇyavarṇa-mahāvihāra (or, Kwā Bāhāḥ) is the name of a monastary in the Kathmandu valley attributed to king Guṇakāmadeva I.—The Ṭhākurī kings (fl. 737-1200 A.D.), though predominantly Śaiva, supported Buddhist institutions. Several of the monasteries of the Kathmandu valley are attributed to kings of this period (737-1200) in inscriptions, palm-leaf deeds, manuscript colophons, or their own tradition; for example, Hiraṇyavarṇamahāvihāra and the Pārāvatamahāvihāra (Itūm Bāhāḥ) to Bhāskaradeva (1039–1048).
The history of India traces the identification of countries, villages, towns and other regions of India, as well as royal dynasties, rulers, tribes, local festivities and traditions and regional languages. Ancient India enjoyed religious freedom and encourages the path of Dharma, a concept common to Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism.
