Kavrepalanchowk, Nepal

Panauti Bazar is a small town 35 km southeast of Kathmandu, famed for its variety of Buddhist and Hindu religious monuments. It constitutes a traditional agrarian society, with most local people dependent on agriculture and animal husbandry, and a smaller number dependent on tourism. Population has been growing very quickly because of immigration following the 2015 earthquake. The town comprises several settlements and community forests, including Jyalachiti.
