 Talking about the five-year golden age in the development of Bhaktapur, he said that this remote area has now been transformed by development. Stating that he has changed the face of development in Bhaktapur alone by bringing more than Rs 15 billion budget on his initiative, he said that Ghyampedanda and Ranikot areas have become the main tourist attraction.

 He said that hotels have come into operation by investing millions of rupees in this area, billions have been invested in the hotel business, zip line has come into operation here and now paragliding and bungee jumping are also starting. Talking about raising the standard of living here in terms of tourism, he said that Bhaktapur has succeeded in making the country a model in development.

 Speaking on the occasion, Mayor Vasudev Thapa said that the municipality has constructed Shiva Circuit to make the Suryabinayak area a religious tourist area. He said that the roads and infrastructure required for its development as a tourist area are being developed.

 Juna Basnet, deputy chief of the municipality, said that the municipality has succeeded in developing not only religious and tourism development but also roads, drinking water, employment, agriculture, education and health.

 As the area has been known as Ghyampedanda since time immemorial, Ghyampoda has been constructed to reflect the identity of the area and to increase the tourist attraction in the important tourist area, said Ward Chairman Rabindra Sapkota.

 He informed that a budget of Rs. 2 million has been allocated for the municipality through ward no.

 He said that the 'ghyampo', which looks very attractive, was built from the bottom with an iron rod and cement at a height of 22 feet.

 Ward Chairperson of Ward No. 8 Kiran Thapa said that the federal, state and municipal budgets have changed the face of the region after the arrival of people's representatives. Chairman of the Consumers' Committee Sabin Tamang said that the locals are also involved in the protection of the area which has about 17 ropanis of public land.

 Long ago, this area was popularly known as Kus Birta of the local Brahmin community. According to the locals, the name of this hill was changed to Ghyampedanda after 2035 BS.

 Many years ago, local shepherds and herdsmen used to bury jars under the ground to provide water to the cattle and use the water as required. There is a belief that keeping water in the jug underground makes the water hot in winter and cold in summer.
