    I have been living in Boudha for about 5 years and noticed this store a few months ago . I did not realize how large it was and how how large the variety was . I met the manager and he is very pleasant and then met the Owner Anil Lama who is very knowledgable and has a kind personality . I just ordered some Thankas that as presents that I will take to Vancouver

    This is the greatest experience and glad that I got a chance to visit such a nice calm and peaceful place with the feel of art and understanding artist by their painting. Understanding artist and their painting are really hard but when you see it, you can feel each one of them through your heart and mind.
    I really found interesting and everyone should visit.

    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!

    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!

    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.
