    If you are new to large Asian and middle eastern markets, hang onto your hat (and your belongings)! This bazaar is a wild experience, even for the well-heeled global traveler. You will be packed shoulder to shoulder with bikes, cars, fruit carts, and other people--to name a few things! But the noise, sights, and stalls will be something to remember. Sensory overload for sure! What can't you find at this bazaar?

    Recommend keeping your money close and do not bother with a large camera/any camera.

    Be brave and give it a try! It is sure to result in a story.

    They provided a history of this type of artwork. Pointed out how each piece of art is created: from canvas prep to the final signature. It’s more than just art.

    By accident I heard about the woodcraft workshop on Saturday mornings. The really nice brothers welcome you an give you the possibility to choose your own form to work on. After that they help you by making it the way they do it in Nepal. In the meanwhile they can tell you whatever you want to know about Nepal and their culture. They're also really interested in your culture. After the workshop, that ends when you are ready, they ask you for tips because they want to learn teaching. So I would recommend everybody to go to the Gallery on Saturday at 12 o'clock, it's all for free!

    I visited the Art Council today to see some contemporary Nepalese art.

    I loved the exhibition that has some very fine examples of contemporary Nepalese art. See below.

    The director took time out to show me around and explain some of the paintings.

    It was a great experience. If you want to see Nepal through the eyes of contemporary Nepalese go there.

    We bought 2 paintings from here today for 3 specific reasons.

    1: the art is beautiful.
    2: we were able to browse without being constantly pestered by someone trying to make a sale.
    3: The seller did not try to rip us off, he gave us a reasonable price from the get go unlike other galleries we went to.

    10/10 would recommend this art gallery!

    I visit KTM frequently and this place is unique. The shirts are high quality and sold at reasonable no-haggle prices. Designs and production are local. The designs are thoughtful and cool looking.

    I bought one shirt last visit and am back for more. The owners are super nice and have a higher-consciousness about why they're running a shop. Definitely stop in.

    If you are looking for AUTHENTIC Antiques which are from Nepal, this is the store for you.
    Excellent products all displayed in a very organized setting.
    The owners/store workers were beyond excellent.
    They explained every piece they presented to me.
    Best store ever for antiques.

    Excelent photographies of Nepal, particularly of Boudhanath stupa dating 1905, probably the oldest record of this marvellous stupa. Met with director Swaraj Man Chitrakar who kindly showed us archive photos and old glass plate negatives. A gallery worth visiting by any enthusiast in photograpgy. A great cultural legacy for all. (PD: a bit difficult to find, ask at ticket booth of Durbar Sq., ladies there new exactly how to get there)

    Good place to sculptures and photography and paintings exhibition events. Also best place to practice on wood since they teach you wood carving for free on every Saturday 12pm to 3pm. One could make gift for oneself in that hour. You must enroll first and for that have to talk to the Gallery people and then go to training for free on Saturdays. And also share your wood working experience from your professional wood carving work.
