The city name is wrong in the binary compile.
 'Asia/Katmandu' => 5.45,

It should be actually typed as:
 'Asia/Kathmandu' => 5.45,

Many other applications use the correct name: Kathmandu.
May be PHP has to fix it and announce.

All current stable versions of PHP include both Asia/Katmandu and
Asia/Kathmandu (with both of them being identical). As I understand
it, this is due to a spelling mistake in the time zone database itself
that was only rectified two or three years ago; since there is likely
to be old code that relies on the misspelled version of Katmandu, both
names have been retained.

Closing won't fix.
