Newa Place Names

This is a list of Newa Place Names on Facebook. These facebook place pages are created under the campaign Reviving Native Newa names in Nepa Valley and Nepal Mandala. I have made a list of the place names and its links. Please follow the instructions follows.

Guide to use these on Facebook

Not all of the Newa names on Facebook are popular. Therefore, you might not find them over ‘searching’. Here is a manual way to do it. (This is not possible on computer device, but mobile device. In case your mobile phone has a different setting, things might be placed differently)

Step 1: Click on the link provided. A page of the place will open.

Step 2: Find the three dots. Below the like button and beside the Save Button. Click on it.


Step 3: You will see a ‘Check in button’, click on it.

Step 4: Make posts and post them. Another easy way to store them is, to ‘Save’ the page link, so that the places get stored in your ‘Saved’ menu of your Facebook. However, until these places will be popularly used, it will not appear on ‘Search’ menu of ‘Check in’. Some places like Yén is already visible over search, due to wide use.

The page shall be updated as new locations of Newa names are created on Facebook.
