Alternative Names: Jayapur, Nagan (s.a. Kirtipur-16)
One of Kirtipurs satellite villages. Gaun as an ending of a name (also written as -gau or - gaon) means a Village (Settlement). My idea is that each Settlement in the Valley should be represented by at least one picture of a Temple, a Shrine, a Chaitya and Sculptures.
