Kathmandu: Nepal’s national anthem, Sayaun Thunga Phoolka Hami, has been translated into Hebrew, Israel’s national language. 

The anthem was translated into Hebrew by Ambassador of Israel to Nepal Hanan Goder.

Organizing a small ceremony on Wednesday at the Embassy’s premises in Lazimpat,  Ambassador Goder gifted the translated version of the national anthem to Byakul Maila, the original lyricist of the national anthem. 

Dr. Jayaraj Acharya, former Ambassador of Nepal to the UN, was also present during the ceremony.

The anthem was adopted in 2007 after the abolishment of monarchy in the country. Composed by Amber Gurung, the anthem was selected by the BBC as the third “most amazing national anthem” in the world during the 2016 Rio Olympics.
