Kantipur (Nepali: कान्तिपुर) is a Nepali language daily newspaper, published from Kathmandu, Biratnagar, Nepalgunj, and Bharatpur of Nepal simultaneously.

Kantipur's publishers report that the circulation of this newspaper is just above 250,000 copies per day. It is regarded as one of the most widely read newspaper in Nepal, as well as a good source of information of homeland for Nepali diaspora.

The newspaper which began publishing on 7th Falgun, 2047 B.S. along with it's sister publication "The Kathmandu Post" is often credited for taking lead in institutionalizing free press and professional journalism in the country.

Kantipur has been praised for it's stance towards multi-party democracy and press freedom in Nepal but also has faced government scrutiny and repression. After publishing then rebel leader Babu Ram Bhattarai's article on Royal Massacre, government arrested then editor Yuvraj Ghimire and other management team members.

In June 2010, Kantipur accused the Indian Embassy of interfering with its coverage by punitively withdrawing advertisements from the company and delaying shipments of newsprint from India intentionally.

Sudhir Sharma is the current editor of the newspaper.

It is owned by Kantipur Publications Pvt. Ltd.. The same company owns the following media outfits as well:

* Kantipur Television Network (KTV)

* Kantipur FM 96.1, A FM radio, transmitted over the mid and eastern Nepal
