Where to buy Nepalese bohdi beads?

Hi:

I want to buy some bodhi seed beads from nepal for business purpose, but where is the main plant area in Nepal?

I prefer to directly contact with manufacturer, artisan, especially from plant area or tree owner.

Any ideas? just send me a message.

Thanks

There're many shops in Thamel where you can find them. You can also check in Bouddhanath Square.

You can check some of them and then choose the one seems better to you.

Namaste
