You can buy all kinds of pottery here but the best experions to try and make it yourself. You can make an elephant or make a pot on the machine. Sajan is a nice guy who helps you very good.

A very small place covered by few hutments. Not much of pottery is on display. Since its close to other attractions, it can be just glanced through.

This square focuses on local dark clay pottery making. You can see people pressing the clay, working their clay wheels to make pots and jugs, firing the articles in kilns, browse and buy. Great photo opportunities and friendly people.

The square is filled with construction materials after the earthquake. Walk around you will see the potters at work. Even today a kiln was inaugurated. The shops around the square sell clay trinkets and decorations. Bargain hard.

There is nothing to see here. You can also avoid this place. Some construction work is going on when i visited this place.
