Panga an Introduction
« on: May 12, 2010, 11:45:40 AM »
Historical Background
The settlement of Panga is related with the Gopal era of ancient Nepal.
The Gopals are supposed to be the first rulers who have left some evidence of their reign .e.g. Pashupati Nath temple is one of the most important monument of then. Panga was known as Shristipur in ancient time. During visit of spiritual saint “Shankaracharya" it was changed to Shankarapur. Its has got its name Shankarapur as the settlement is in the shape of Shankha. In Medieval time it again changed to Panga. There are different myths found in naming of Panga. Some of them are as follows.

Myth I 1       
   The Gopals (then known as SAAPU (cowboy or cow owners in Newari language) were searching for new place in ancient time they found Maayavo( the place where pulses were found abundantly) in Shristi Pur. Due to fertile land they started living there. The Maayavo has now changed in Maayabu in present. After some time the place was expanded in many places .In that time also Shankarapur was name of Panga. This name is continued till late Malla Kings period.  In late Malla kings period ,due to spread of war between country to country the people of this place used to stand around the periphery of this place so in newari term Paa is also known as a chain and Gna/gaa is known as Village so the combination of Paa and Gna /gaa converted into Panga.


Myth II 2
 According to this, due to spread of war the guests were supposed to come in Kirtipur  for safety and they were managed in this place so the word combining Paa i.e Guest and Gan/Gaa or Village chaned to Panga.

Myth III 3
During the Construction of Tundikhel in Medieval period the land owner were settled in this area. Since they were not migrated from Kathmandu and Kirtipur itself was a sovereign country the migrated people became Guests and the village formed by guests turned to Panga.
