Yuvak Tuladhar, Artist
Long after Buddhism faded in India, the artists of the historical Nepal Valley (where Buddhism survives as a vibrant tradition to this day) continued to create Buddhist icons of such renown that they were sought across Central Asia and even attracted the patronage of the imperial court in China. Today this venerable artistic tradition continues to flourish in its homestead in the ateliers of the Kathmandu Valley. Though besieged by rampant development, the glorious royal squares in the center of Nepal's ancient capitals, Kathmandu, Patan, and Bhaktapur, have been kept intact with their unique ensembles of temples and palatial buildings. The name of Bhaktapur itself means "City of Devotees."
