Nepal has a lengthy history of earthquakes due to its location in one of the world's most seismically active areas. The country's first known earthquake occurred on June 7, 1255, under the reign of King Abhaya Malla. The 7.8 magnitude earthquake killed the monarch and wiped out a third of Kathmandu's population at the time. Since then, Nepal has seen at least one major earthquake per century. In this article, we have listed the top 10 biggest seismic earthquakes in Nepal.
