Due to his busy schedule, he was unable to meet Lord Changu Narayan  one day while harvesting paddy.A fter a day, he went home with a huge load of paddy, and Lord Changu Narayan appeared inside the paddy. In 1667, he constructed a two-storey elegant temple on the current Wakupati Narayan Temple. Because he is sitting on a paddy load, this Narayan is known as Wakupati Narayan.In Nepalbhasa “Wa” signifies “Paddy” and “Ku” indicates “Storage”Pati” is a Hindi word that signifies “owner.” Wakupati Narayan is known as Narayan because he owns a paddy burden. As a result, the practice of offering new paddy to this Narayan has not changed since the introduction of new paddy.
