Bungmati is a small town which is located 10 kilometres south from the heart of Kathmandu the capital city of Nepal. The village has hundreds of master wood carver and sculpture producers.

The ancient village came into existence as early in the 7th century. It used to be an autonomous province in Kathmandu Valley. Regardless of the rapid changes in lifestyle of the urban population and the globalized way of living, the Bungamati locals have remained untouched by modern waves and are living the life that they know best--simply rural-- from the past several centuries.
