Phutung is a village in Kathmandu District in the Bagmati Zone of central Nepal. At the time of the 2011 Nepal census it had a population of 4792 and had 1064 households in it.[1] Although the etymological roots of the word “phutung” is unknown, the word is perhaps related to Tibeto-Burman kirati root meaning “subsidiary”. Accordingly, if its kirati root is true, the name may date back to 500 BC during the era when Tibeto-Burman speaking kirati people ruled the Kathmandu Valley. Please read the history of Kathmandu valley for ancient history of the Kathmandu valley. The village is the source of name for a technological research institute named Phutung Research Institute [2] for the word rhymes with word photon, the name for the smallest packet of electromagnetic energy.
