5 thousands years ago, the current area of Kapurdhara, Kathmandu lacked water for survival. Lord Krishna, who had come from India, shot with bow and arrow on the ground and then it brought white water from there. The water was as white as camphor {Kapur}. A tap {dhara} was also established there. So the place is called Kapurdhara which means a place where a tap having white water as camphor is found.
