Nepal is blessed with one of the richest cultures in the world. This is a culture that has become ‘a way of life for an entire society’. This statement holds particularly true in the case of Nepal where every aspect of life, food, clothing and even occupations are culturally tuned to everyday life. Nepal’s exotic culture includes the codes of manners, dress, language, rituals, norms of behaviour and systems of belief that has flowed through its history for generations.
Nepal & its culture, from early Sanskrit texts – which is the medium of both ancient Vedas & of the spread of Buddhist teachings in the 3rd century BC – to influences from every age since perhaps came into existence in the 12th to a 16th-century era of the Mallas & their amazingly well-developed civilization.
Everywhere centered around the durbar squares of Patan, Kathmandu & Bhaktapur itself are noble structures both royal & religious which highlights the Hindu gods, mainly of Vishnu, Brahma & Shiva with superb artifacts from both Hindu & Buddhist traditions; leaving you in no doubt as to the glories of the past & well informed as to the span of civilizations that have flourished & competed here in the land of the mighty Himalayas.
Amidst the extraordinary wonders of it all is the daily toil of a bygone age which mingles with the intricate social complexity of a community which has honed its ways over the same centuries in which the craftsmen have unhurriedly practised their trades – potters, brass & gold workers, woodcarvers, mask-makers & masons in all; toiling their trades from traditions that existed from eras probably as old as the mountains.
