Bhrikuti (also Bhrikuti devi) was a princess of the Licchavi kingdom of Nepal during the 7th century. Her father, Aṃshuvarmā, was the king.


She is said to have married a Tibetan king by the name of Tsrong-tsong Gompo (King Srong Tsangampo / Srong btsan sGampo), converted him to Buddhism, and built famous monuments of Tibet such as Jokhang and Potala, as well as temples in Bhutan. However, no evidence outside of tradition has been found to support the story.

Although her marriage was not recorded in texts outside Tibet, Bhrikuti Devi nevertheless became a great woman in her own right by propagating Buddha Dharma.
