“Sayaun Thunga Phool Ka” (Nepali: सयौं थुँगा फूलका “Made of Hundreds of Flowers”) is the national anthem of Nepal. It was officially declared as the national anthem of Nepal on August 3, 2007, amid a ceremony held at the conference hall of National Planning Commission, inside the Singha Durbar, by the speaker of the interim parliament, Mr. Subash Chandra Nemwang. The previous anthem, Rastriya Gaan, had been adopted in 1962.
The lyrics of the National Anthem were written by the poet Pradeep Kumar Rai, alias Byakul Maila. The music is composed by Amber Gurung. The national anthem is simply worded, praising Nepali sovereignty, unity, courage, pride, scenic beauty, progress, peace, cultural and biological diversity, and respect.
