“A training institute”

Reviewed November 28, 2012

An art paradise in the hills- Click photos of various students working on Bhutanese arts. Don’t go if you are not an art lover. There is much to learn for you as an artist.

We saw many artists-in-training labouring over 13 forms of traditional Bhutanese arts and crafts. I enjoyedthe colours in the embroidery room, and watching the artists carving minute details on statues and masks. Found a wall painting of a drangon covered in shimmery fish scales the most impressive.

The gift shop sells intersting works.

You can walk though the various areas of this institute and watch students work on various types of activities: sculpture, painting, weaving, wood carving etc. The rooms are separated by the number of years the students have been practicing their art. This is one of the most interesting place we have visited in Buthan.

This institute is quiet far from the city center and you need to hire a taxi to reach this place. It is said that this school teaches 13 arts, but when I reached I could find more than 13 arts. The place is really interesting where the students are really undergoing training in their respective arts. The entrance fee was Nu 50, but the ticket counter was closed when I reached and I could explore this place for free.
