It is said that king Gun Kamdev founded Kathmandu in the year 723 AD. If you go by the legend, the area was a lake in the past. A Buddhist deity named Manjushri liked the place and wanted habitation there. The Buddhist god then bifurcated the hill to the south and allowed the water to flow out. As the water flowed out, the region became habitable. Of course, this is a Buddhist tradition and is different from the one by Hindus. The origin of the name is still unclear and historians spin new theories every other day according to their whim and fancies. Nevertheless one of the more likely theories is that it was named after Kastha-Mandap ("temple of wood" in Sanskrit). King Laxmi Narashingha Malla commissioned a pagoda carved from the single tree in 1596 and it might be possible that the same pagoda is behind its naming.

Navin Benson de Cozynuk à été absolument remarquable tant pour son professionnalisme que pour sa bienveillance, à faire que notre voyage en INDE, soit un voyage fabuleux. Une grande ponctualité du chauffeur, des hôtels très bien choisis, des visites organisées. Un tour organisé sur mesure. Un très grand merci.
Agencia 100% fiable. Navin y su equipo nos han tratado fantásticamente y Bophal, el conductor, ha sido sin duda lo mejor del viaje. Atento, agradable y muy cercano. Si contactais con la agencia preguntad por él y seguro que no os arrepentis. Gracias por todo. ♥️
We are a family of 5 with 3 kids and we traveled around northern India for over 2 weeks. The planning of such a trip takes alot of time and details. If found the perfect company with CozyNuk working particularly Navin. I would without hesitation use Navin again to help plan a future trip to India (which was magical).
