The Dharmapala Center in Katmandu, a traditional Buddhist Thangka painting school, is a good place to understand more about this ancient artform. Indeed this centre founded more than thirty years ago has been creating high-quality Thangkas closely adhering to traditional painting customs and supervised by lamas of the Nyingma order. The exquisite paintings from the school have been featured in exhibitions all over the world (US, Japan, Europe, Australia,..) bearing testimony to the skills of these talented artists. Formed by Karsang Lama and then followed up by Master Karma Tse Ring Moktan-Lama and Yubaraj Lama, the school has trained more than three hundred artists in the fine art of Thangka painting over the decades.
