Bandipur lies between the two major cities of Nepal, Kathmandu and Pokhara. Bandipur is a small village which is beautifully located in the foot of  the Annapurna Massif. Banidpur is famous for its traditional culture, lifestyle, friendly and loving local people. There is famous Bandipur bazar which is not touched by the modern architecture.

Back in history, Bandipur was a trading hub and its 18th century architectural, cultural buildings and facades were always the center of attraction for both royals and Newar of Kathmandu. Prior to Newari culture and caste, Bandipur was typically a Magar Village. As the village was free or the plague, Malaria, Newari traders took an advantage of it, made Bandipur as the foremost trading spot between India and Tibet. Then, slowly Newar creates their own civilitzation over Bandipur. They create a magnificent architecture, cultural heritage, which is till well treasured and preserved in this ancient city. You can read the full history of Bandiupr from here.
