Best Answer

Its old name in Newa Bhasa is 'Nhu Pukhu', which means 'the new pond'. The name probably came about because of the fact that there were numerous ornamental ponds in the Newar city-states. At that time, the pond dug out by Pratap Malla must have been the latest addition. "Rani Pokhari" is the Parbate-ized name.
