Lalitpur : The city of Fine Arts

Lalitpur is also known as ‘Yala’ and ‘Manigal’ is known for its cultural heritage and city of art and is the third-largest metropolitan city of Nepal foundation pillar of 29 wards. The metropolitan city is in Kathmandu valley border with Mahalaxmi Municipality east, Kathmandu Metropolitan City in the south-west, and Godavari Municipality in the North. Since ancient times Lalitpur has been decorated with its art, culture, architecture, metal, and wooden craftsmanship for a very long time. This UNESCO world heritage city was based upon Nepalese chronicles, founded by King Varadeva in 299 CE. At the time of the 2011 Nepal census, it had a population of 226,728 in 54,748 individual households.

Lalitpur used to be the capital city of the Licchavi, Thakuri, and Malla dynasties. Lalitpur gives the explorer the warm and best experience, offers the best hospitality and makes them feel safe, secure, and special.

In 1769, after Prithivi Narayan Shah conquered the valley, Lalitpur was plundered and the people treated with great brutality(wishnepal, 2021). Lalitpur pride glorifies one of the long artist dance ‘Kartik Nach’.

Lalitpur is believed to have been founded in the third century BC by the Kirat dynasty and later expanded by Licchavis in the sixth century. It was further expanded by the Mallas during the medieval period.

There are many legends about its name. The most popular one is the legend of the God Rato
Machhindranath, who was brought to the valley from Kamaru Kamachhya, located in Assam, India, by a group of three people representing the three kingdoms centred in the Kathmandu Valley.

One of them was called Lalit, a farmer who carried God Rato Machhindranath to the valley from Assam, India. The purpose of bringing the God Rato Machhindranath to the valley was to overcome the worst drought there. There was a strong belief that the God Rato Machhindranath would bring rain to the valley. It was due to Lalit’s effort that the God Rato Machhindranath was settled in Lalitpur. Many believe that the name of the town is kept after his name ‘Lalit’ and ‘pur’ meaning township.

In 1769, after Prithivi Narayan Shah conquered the valley, Lalitpur was plundered and the people treated
with great brutality(wishnepal, 2021). Lalitpur pride glorifies one of the long artist dance ‘Kartik Nach’.
