The word "Bhimphedi" comes from Sanskrit word "Bhim" (a character from Mahabharat) and Nepali word "phedi" meaning a base of a hill. According to local beliefs, the Pandavas from Mahabharat had stayed in the forests of present day Bhimphedi during their time in exile. So, the place was called Bhimphedi.
Before the construction of highways, goods from India were taken to Kathmandu valley from this place. The first motor vehicles of Nepal were carried by people through this VDC. The VDC served as the district headquarters of Makwanpur before it was shifted to Hetauda. The market of the VDC suffered tremendously after the shifting of headquarters to Hetaunda.
