History: The city of Kathmandu
was built by king Gun Kamdev in 723 A.D. It is said that Kathmandu was a
lake in the past and was made habitable by Manjushree, who cut open the
hill to south to allow the water to flow away.
It is believed that the name is
derived from the Sanskrit term, "Kastha-Mandap" meaning the
temple made of wood, an imposing pagoda near Hanuman Dhoka Palace. It
was built in 1596 out of a single tree by King Laxmi Narashingha
