Magars are the largest indigenous ethnic group of Nepal comprising over 7% of the population. Our ancestral homeland extend from the Western and the Southern edges of the Dhaulagiri range of the Himalayas to the Mahabharat foothills in the South and Kali Gandaki river basin in the East and have now spread throughout of Nepal. Magar is a caste constituted from various sub tribes with multi faith and multi ritual practices. Magars are also world renowned warriors serving in Nepalese, Indian and British Army and their service and personal accomplishments in the Army have been recognised with many prestigious gallantry awards and decorations.
Due to the increased globalisation, Magars have now migrated all over the world including UK seeking for better lives. With many Magars living in various parts of the UK in early 2002, first Magar Society was formed with the title “Langhali Pariwar” on 27 July 2002 with some degree of aims and objectives. After UK settlement right was given to former Gurkhas, many more Magars moved to the UK. With increased population of Magars in the UK, it was necessary to give a platform for all Magars to integrate and preserve and develop our culture, values, traditions and identify and share eventualities as an Association. As such, “Laghali Pariwar” became “Magar Association UK” embracing wider aims and objectives and established as a non-profitable social society (Association) in the UK and registered as a charitable organisation on 11 Nov 2008.
