Welcome to Budhanilkantha Municipality !

We would like to introduce you to our Budhanilkantha Municipality where we believe in “Service with a Smile”. Budhanilkantha municipality got its current administrative system and structure on December 2 of 2014 after merging former VDCs Hattigauda, Khadka Bhadrakali, Chapali Bhadrakali, Mahankal, Bishnu, Chunikhel, and Kapan. Situated 3,732 m above sea level, it is spread over 35 sq km. Our municipality is considered a VVIP area for settlement backed up by a literacy rate of nearly 100%. At the time of the 2011 Nepal census, it had a population of 15,421 with 26,485 households. Now, it can be estimated roughly over 1,53,303 with 32,039 households. 

 Budhanilkantha municipality is a developing suburban location that lies at the foot of Shivapuri hill. It lies in the Kathmandu District of Bagmati province in Nepal. It shares its western border with the Tokha Municipality, eastern with the Gokarneshwor Municipality and Kathmandu Metropolitan ward no.6, northern with the Shivapuri peak and the southern border contains flat terrain with the densely populated area.

The beautiful, natural and cultural diversity of Budhanilkantha is transforming it into an excellent tourist spot. We also proudly identify ourselves as a place with a clean, peaceful, prosperous tourist area.

Budhanilkantha has many temples like Chandeshwor Mandir, Rudreshwor Mandir. Bharakali, Panchakanya, Shiva Mandir, Krishna Mandir, Banglamukhi, Dangyur Ghyangatera Gumba, Anigumba, and other stupas.

Apart from that, there are also many other temples and religious places that cater to different followers and cultures. As we have a rich religious and cultural history, we attract pilgrims of devotees of Lord Shiva, Baisnav, and Gautam Buddha. 

 If you like rivers and other water sources then you can visit Bishnumati, Rudramati, Dhobikhola, Yagyamati, Chyane Khola, etc. If you are into hiking, take a walk above Bishnuwar or pick a longer trail like Shivapuri Hill. Evening trail to Kopan Ghumba could be another top pick. Such varied landscapes, and excellent spread of forest areas and natural resources make it an excellent choice for trekkers and tourists.

We offer many services like Nagarik Wadapatra, Ghatana Darta, Darkhasta, Samajik Surakshya and Niwedan Dhancha and more in the Municipaity Office. Also, each of the head branch offices has its own set of functions and systems. Let’s take a look at some of their functions and services.
