Anyone Have Any Idea What This Is?

Hi everyone.
I went to look over a few guns that are going to be auctioned off tomorrow. This gun is listed, and I have no idea what it is. It appears to be a single shot with a lever to open the action. Not sure what caliber or any other real information about it, as the information is written in a language unknown to me. It's in really nice shape.What do you guys think?
Thanks

It is a Gahendra rifle, basically a Nepalese made copy of a Martini Henry. You can get an idea of value on the IMA militaria website.

Well it's a Martini-Henry from somewhere. Probably a .577-450.
You need to watch the greatest movie ever made, 'Zulu'. Here's a teaser.

Flickr doesn't like IE 11. So the pictures stay small and are dark.

Not a Martini Henry, definitely a Gahendra.

Definitely it is a Nepalese Gahendra.

Here is one listed on the IMA website.
