Nepal Handicraft Street runs between Gaoyin Street and Hefang Street, featuring crafts ranging from jewelry and knick-knacks to figures of Buddha and thangka - scroll paintings of Buddha.

Established in 2006 and run by two Nepali merchants, the lane has become well-known for its distinctive goods, all hand-made in Nepal.

Best sellers include silver chains and rings, plus other jewelry featuring crystal, shells and gems.

Bronze Buddha figures are also popular, with a 10-centimeter one priced at 600 yuan (US$94).

Other items related to Buddhism include ox bone figures of Buddha, prayer beads and praying wheels. Handicrafts on offer also include paper jewelry boxes, collapsible wooden containers, incense and hand-painted stone plates.
