At the time of the 1991 Nepal census it had a population of 2799 and had 506 households in it.[1] Santosh Khadka was elected as Chairman of Matatirtha through a local election.[citation needed] Etymology[edit] The word Matatirtha comes from two Sanskrit words, "Mata" meaning mother and "tirtha" meaning a sacred place. The VDC owes its name from a sacred pond in the VDC dedicated to mother.
