Born Nepal

House Malla Dynasty
Occupation King of Kantipur

Jaya Prakash Malla (Nepali: जयप्रकाश मल्ल) (died 1768) was the last king of Yen (यें) or Kantipur (कान्तिपुर) which corresponds to present day Kathmandu. He ruled from 1736 to 1746, and then from 1750 until his death in 1768. He was very unlucky to have to spend a lot of time fighting other kingdoms of Nepal including Prithvi Narayan Shah in the Battle of Kathmandu . He was the last king of Kathmandu (at that time, Kathmandu functioned as an independent state or principality) before King Prithvi Narayan Shah attacked Kathmandu, when the Kathmanduites were celebrating the festival of Indrajatra, and conquered it.

He contributed to the literature of Nepal Bhasa as well. His known Nepal Bhasa literatures include "Padma Samuchaya" . He composed three dramas in Nepalbhasha. They were related with Hindu mythology. They include: Ratneshwar Pradurbhav Birdhwojopakhyan Natakam Bhairavpradurbhav (Baidhya, Janaklal: Nepalbhasha ya Prachin Kabyra Sirjana, p. 118; ISBN 99933-50-32-X)
