Culture and History

Samskriti comes from a sanskrit word meaning culture, though its literal translation is when matter takes on a refined form. What better way to describe Nepal’s diverse culture. 

Welcome to Aviskara’s culture and history page! Despite its relatively small size, Nepal is home to a vastly diverse range of cultures and ethnicities. We are extremely fortunate to live in a country that has such a rich heritage and whose history, arts and social institutions encompass everything from the mythical and spiritual to the technological and cosmopolitan.  Our intention is to educate ourselves further on as many of the cultural particulars of Nepal as we can and we encourage our readers to join us as we gain a deeper understanding of our beautiful and complex traditions and customs.
