Artwork at Nalanda Monastery


Nalanda has a well-equipped art workshop in which statues, stupas and tsa-tsas (plaster-cast images) are produced, painted and gilded.


We are well known for our high quality tsa-tsa moulds. These are provided so that practitioners can create merit and fulfil commitments given to them by their teachers.

We do not supply for commercial use e.g. making statues to sell; as our workshop is maintained only by a few monks whose main work is the study of the Dharma, we can only provide you with the limited service of making silicone moulds.
