Kritipur/Dhakhinkali/Pharping/Bugmati-Khokona

Kirtipur: Kirtipur is an ancient city in Nepal. It is located in the Kathmandu District 5 km south-west of Kathmandu. It is one of the five municipalities of the Kathmandu Valley. The name Kirtipur comes from Kirti (Glory) and pur (city). It is also said that once a queen named ‘Kirti’ ruled over this place so, it might have been named after the same queen since ‘pur’ means a city, and it states Kirtipur means the city of ‘Kirti’. Originally a Newari foundation, Kirtipur is still a center of Newari culture.

Bugmati and Khokona: Bungamati and Khokana are the rural residents whose families have thrived here since antiquity. These are the Newars, people who are indigenous to the Kathmandu Valley. Even today they live simply, in much the same way as their forefathers. Many residents here live as woodcarvers (and have done so for generations), and the tour includes visits to their showrooms to see artisan craftwork that has adorned thousands of local temples and museums. Historically, this place is the birthplace of the deity Machhindranath, who stays there for six months of the year and he spends the rest of the time in Patan. The procedure of moving him back and forth is one of the major annual festivals in the valley. Besides that, a dedication to Lord Ganesha, the Karyabinayak temple is one of the most important temples in Nepal. From that temple, the view of the surroundings looks very spectacular. The major locality of people is living as woodcarvers around that area.
Khokona is a beautiful traditional Newari village, since ancient times, this place itself very famous for the production of mustard oil. The dedication to shekels Mai-a mother goddess is constructed of two levels. The temple of Rudrayani and ponds carries similar religious importance as well. There is a small museum which has been maintained by the local people in which they have got old farming tools, jewelers, etc.
