Bungamati (Town)

Alternative Names: Amarapur, Amaravati Nagar, Bunga


Bungamati is one of the 42 Newar Settlements in the Valley acc. to U. Muller (1984), one of the Settlements of the Bungamati VDC.
Newari Village south of Lalitpur (Patan).
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.



You`ll find it`s Location in the picture farthest left under
No. 13
