Geographical Location

LSMC, the beautiful medieval city of art and culture is situated in the southeast part of the magnificent Kathmandu valley which is located between the latitudes 27o 32' 13" and 27o 49' 10" North and longitudes 85o 11' 31" and 85o 31' 38" East. The valley lies at a mean elevation of about 1350 m. above sea level.

The city spread over an area of 15.43 sq.km. and is politically divided into 22 wards. Of the twenty two wards, area wise ward no 15 is the largest with an area of 2.43 sq.km. and with an area of 0.09 sq.km ward no 21 is the smallest.

The city is located over a plateau like area with its outer edges fanning out with gentle slopes towards the rivers that form its boundaries. This is in consonance with the traditional settlement planning philosophy where the settlements were located on relatively higher ground preserving the relatively fertile agricultural land that surrounded it. This judicious planning effort assured the optimization of the use of urban space and the farmlands that carried economical as well as environmental significance to the urban residents.

The altitude of the city varies from a minimum of 1266 m. to a maximum of 1366 m. above sea level, which shows the relative flatness of the ground on which the city is located.
