Alternative Names: Va, Wa (new.), Champapur, Capagau
Chapagaun is a Traditional Newar Settlement. One of the 29 Rural Preservation Districts acc. to C. Pruscha (1975). Gaun as an ending of a name (also written as -gau or - gaon) means a Village (Settlement). My idea is that each Place (Area) in the Town should be represented by at least one picture of a Temple, a Shrine, a Chaitya and Sculptures.
