  • Pyuthan Municipality is municipality and bazaar of Pyuthan District, a Middle Hills district of Rapti Zone, western Nepal. It is also the District Headquarter and the administrative center. The municipality was established in 18 May 2014 merging the existing Pyuthan Khalanga, Bijubar, Dakha Kwadi, Bijaya Nagar, Dharmawati, Maranthana and Khaira village development committees. The town is situated on a mountainside about 500 meters above the intensively cultivated floodplain of Jhimruk Khola about 15 kilometers north of the Mahabharat Range in the Middle Hills. Besides expansive views of Jhimruk valley there are limited views of a few peaks in the western part of the Dhaulagiri range off to the north. The town is populated by government officials, by soldiers and police of Magar and other "hill tribes" and their mostly Chhetri officers, by Newar merchants, by civil servants recruited mostly from local Bahun and Chhetri castes, as well as menial castes who labor as tailors, cobblers, blacksmiths and construction workers. Before King Gyanendra was removed from office in 2008, this district center was virtually a royalist island in a republican sea.
