From the cold Himalyas in the north to the plains of Terai in the south, Nepal not only has different cultures and geographic conditions but different units of land measurement as well. Places like Chitwan use Bigha, Kaththa, Dhur whereas in cities like Kathmandu and Pokhara, Aanas and Ropanis is the prevalent unit. We decided to write a guide to Nepali land area units for people who are either too shy to ask their elders about them or simply want to learn them for educational purpose. 

Ropani (रोपनी) 

  • 1 Ropani (रोपनी)= 16 aana (आना) = 64 Paisa (पैसा) = 508.72 m² = 5476 sq.ft.= 256 Daam

Khetmuri (खेतमुरी) 

  • 1 Khetmuri = 25 Ropani

Aana (आना)

  • 1 Aana (आना)= 4 Paisa (पैसा)= 31.80 m²= 342.25 sq. ft.= 16 Daam (दाम)

Paisa (पैसा)

  • 1 Paisa (पैसा) = 4 Daam (दाम)= 7.95 m² = 85.56 sq. ft.

Daam (दैमा)

  • 1 Daam (दाम) = 1.99 m² = 21.39 sq. ft.

Bigha (बिघा)

  • 1 Bigha (बिघा) = 20 Kattha (कठ्ठा) / 6772.63 m² /  72900 sq.ft. / 13.31 Ropani

Kattha (कठ्ठा)

  • 1 Katha (कठ्ठा) = 20 Dhur (धुर) = 338.63 m² = 3645 sq.ft.

Dhur (धुर)

  • 1 Dhur (धुर) = 16.93 m² = 182.25 sq.ft.
