Heritage Zone

The Nepal Art Village will have 4 very distinct areas by function. The first will be a core heritage area where we shall display the best our artists can design and craft. This will be the main area that will draw visitors and be able to enjoy the best Nepali artists have to offer which will be known as the Heritage Zone. 

Kathmandu Valley has more than 2200 monuments with 7 World Heritage Sites in an area of 157 square kilometres and we plan to add one more with residents

As the main attraction, there will be a 72X58X21 feet tall Bhairav mask, the centre of this entity along with the place to perform rituals for the deity and a museum to name a few.

Commercial Zone

To make it livable, bankable and sustainably managed, we will have a marketplace before entering our heritage entity.

This marketplace will have a Falcha cafe, restaurant, conference hall, tented camp, amphitheatre, souvenir shop and bhairab drishti just to name a few.

Residential Zone

Friends and families along with the artists will have space not only to create their work but also to reside as well at our Residential Zone. These residential areas will have private houses, assisted living, homestay facilities, commercial and shopping centres. The structures will be in harmony and renewable energy will be adopted to reduce carbon footprints.


There are lovers of traditional Nepali art all across the world. For years, these artworks have been exported to different countries around the world. In recent times, the number of art lovers of these artworks has been increasing in Nepal as well. In our country, most of the artists and artisans reside and work mainly in urban areas, especially in the Kathmandu Valley. However, as the number of people and houses in the valley is increasing day by day, artisans are facing a lack of open spaces where they can create their craftworks in a quiet and peaceful environment. Considering this, a separate zone named Kalagram has been included in Nepal Art Village’s project site at Chhampi, which will serve as a state-of-the-art workshop for artisans where they will be able to create artefacts of all sizes, from small gold and silver jewellery to gigantic metal statues.

8 categories of the valley’s traditional handicraft methods:

  1. Gold and silver jewellery-making craft
  2. Thaa Jya/Repousse technique (crafting of copper, brass, and bronze to make artefacts)
  3. Thwo Jya: Maa Jya: Repousse technique (shaping of copper and brass sheet by hammering to create artefacts)
  4. Woodcraft
  5. Stone art
  6. Paubha Painting
  7. Pottery
  8. Naa: Jyaa:/Blacksmithing (the art of making iron weapons and essential household iron items)

NAV has envisioned operating a vocational training centre and producing handicraft items under Kalagram by prioritising the above-mentioned handicraft methods. Kalagram has aimed to include handicraft methods from all across the nation in the coming days.

Under construction Kalagram area.

NAV Garden Center

In addition to the above zones, GREEN ENTITY  will be introduced in the form of nature trails, bicycle trails, parks, herbs and vegetable gardens, among the above-mentioned zones. NAV Garden Center will be part of this Green Entity as a unit to preserve biodiversity to attain zero carbon status through carbon sequestration.
