No, this post is not about Majestic Himalayas and one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. Instead, what made me compulsive to dedicate this post this time is the Wood Art (Art crafted in wood) exclusively by the local Nepalese craftsmen.

Wood art and crafts can be found in temples, ancient public rest centers, palaces built in 17th century and even old fountains extensively found throughout
valley and other historic cities. These are widely popular for the beauty and
class it reflects and gradually some Nepali households are adorned with these
stunning Nepali wood art.
Have a Look at them; you will instantly fall in love with the beauty of Nepalese Wood Art:

Nepali windows are remarkably used in modern buildings which are often used for resort and hotel purposes which are attraction for majority of tourists as well. Use of wood art in Nepali windows and fountains is something that makes our buildings and tourist sites exclusive and different from that of other countries.
Personally, I will always recommend to use wooden crafts in the windows, doors and pillars of houses to built in
Nepal. Not only it will give traditional touch to the modern look of concrete buildings, it will preserve Nepali culture and enhance the look of the house as well.

I love and respect the way the wood art of Nepali history is preserved in Dwarika Hotel and other hotels throughout the country. One will certainly feel the serene and harmony residing in the hotel which has so much to offer through wood art sprawling in the area of hotel.

A building looks totally different with wood crafted doors and windows. While the cost to include traditional Nepali window in all over the house is quite expensive compared to iron and steel windows, we can't deny that it will be investment considering a home is built only once (or twice) in a lifetime of a family/person. So, if not everywhere, including Nepali wood art in Doors, entry ways and Windows at the front of house will make any home look lavish and it will be a matter of proud to pass on to generations.
After all, it's upto us how we preserve our heritage and culture. Little effort always makes sense. How would you like to use Nepali wooden art and crafts in your home and office? Have you already used it? Sharing is Brainstorming.
