Now, exciting and compelling evidence reveals that Bhrikuti Devi was indeed a historical princess in the 7th Century, given in marriage to a Tibetan king and subsequently changed the course of Himalayan history by introducing Buddhism from Nepal.
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.
Bhrikuti (also Bhrikuti devi) was a princess of the Licchavi kingdom of Nepal during the 7th century.
Bhrikuti 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.
