In 1991, Kathmandu Metropolitan City was expanded by incorporating Koteshwar VDC as Ward No. 35. It encompasses 395 hectares and is bounded by the Manohara river in the east, the Bagmati river in the west, Ward No. 9 and Gothatar VDC in the north, and Lalitpur Sub-metropolitan City in the south. With respect to basic services, almost all homes in the ward have access to electricity, but the same cannot be said about drinking water and telephones. At the time of the 1991 Nepal census it had a population of 5787 and had 1154 households in it.[1]

There are no hospitals or nursing homes here, but the inhabitants receive health care at health centers and polyclinics. Local and other students benefit from the ward's educational institutions which range from primary schools to campuses. The main industries are garments, carpets and textiles. Privately operated cinemas, high vision halls and pool houses are the entertainment facilities available. The ward contains 8,716 households. The population in 2001 was 35,184.
