Ward No. 04

Home to such famous and ancient temples like Tundal Devi Mai, Chundevi, Pancha Kumari, Mahadevsthan of Baluwatar, Pancha Kanya and Dhum Barahi, Ward No. 4 is spread over an area of 324.1 hectares. The ward is densely settled, even then large tracts of farmland remain, for example, the fields behind Nepal Rastra Bank, west of Chandol and around the Dhobi Khola. These cultivable lands are irrigated by the Dhobi Khola and Khahare rivers. The ward is served by a network of roads.

The population in 2001 was 29,539 and the number of households was 6,768. The actual population is greater because there are many residents who are not registered with the ward. The ward is bordered by the Dhobi Khola in the east; the Para Compound of Laxmi Niwas at Maharajgunj and Ward Nos. 2 and 3 in the west; the Karnali Hotel on the Ring Road and Mahankal VDC in the north; and Bishal Nagar, Bhat Bhateni and the Tukucha stream in the south. Even though all basic amenities are available in the ward, there are still homes without drinking water or telephone connections. There are educational institutions ranging from schools to campuses. Health care is provided by privately operated health posts. There are embassies and international development agencies based in the ward. The Ward Committee is dedicated to expanding and giving continuity to ongoing development works, and requests the cooperation of ward residents in this endeavor.
