About Okhaldhunga
According to legend, it is said that during Mahabharata period , Bhim had eaten his food by beating rice in a deep holed stone like Okhal ( traditional Nepali grinding device made of wood or stone to beat rice, squeeze mustard etc.), so this place was named after that Okhal like stone called Okhaldhunga. Similarly, it is also said that, during Malla regime King Lakshmi Narsingh Malla of Kathmandu has sent his troops for the extension of his State under the leadership of Bhim Malla in this region which reached to this place conquering the eastern parts and ate food by beating rice in a deep holed stone like Okhal displacing Kiraats ruling here, so this place named as Okhaldhunga. The same Okhal of stone is kept safe in Siddhicharan Municipality Ward No. 5 of Okhaldhunga district along with Siddhicharan Park so that anyone can easily observe.
