EtymologyEdit

The municipality named "Bardibas" after Bardibas VDC. According to the Bardibas municipality website: Longtime ago people of surrounding villages used to take rest near Bardibas area with their cattle cart, when they used to bring wooden logs from "Chure Kshetra" (Mahabharat hill area). "Bardi" means "Cattle" and "Bas" mean "Rest" in Maithili language.[1]
