The city is called "Kāṣṭhamaṇḍap" in a vow that Buddhist priests still recite to this day. During medieval times, the city was sometimes called Kāntipur (कान्तिपुर).This name is derived from two Sanskrit words – Kānti and pur."Kānti" is a word that stands for "beauty" and is mostly associated with light and "pur" means place. Among the indigenous Newar people, Kathmandu is known as Yeṃ Deśa (येँ देश), and Patan and Bhaktapur are known as Yala Deśa (यल देश) and Khwopa Deśa (ख्वप देश).Stone inscriptions are a ubiquitous element at heritage sites and are key sources for the history of Nepal.
