Several legends surround the name "THIMI" and it's meaning. Legend says that because the people of Thimi so successfully defended Bhaktapur, the kings of Bhaktapur called them "CHHEMI" meaning "Capable people"- thus praising them for their loyal constant support. Gradually the name of the settlement became Thimi.
