BHAGAWAN PASUPATHINATH OF NEPAL
The Seat of Chaturmukha Siva

He gleefully nodded; for it was not only a trivial thing for him, but he could materialise it by mere volition of hand. He did. It was named Kashta Mandap; and became the centre of attraction of the whole city, nay for entire kingdom. That august Kashta Mandap heightened the glory of the city. And as it owed its existence to the divine tree, people decided to, name it Kantipur which means the city containing the temple of wood. 

That same Kantipur became Katmand in vernacular and grew popular in course of time. The name of the capital is derived thus from that adorable celestial tree-Kalpadurma. This happened in the eight century, but its vestige is still preserved. The very Kashta Mandap built by Kalpavriksha now lying in Durbar square, one of the important spots of the city is attracting huge crowds and is unfolding the glory of the country, king and people in a fantastic manner.
