“Peace of mind is more than everything!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

All of us have a busy and hectic life these days and yes we all need sometime to relax sometime to let go sometime for ourselves and all we basically need is peace of mind. This place gives you that in abundance. The art and culture is spread all over. Calm place to sit, relax and have a cup of tea. True significance of culture. A must visit place in the queen of forest Mussoorie.

“Spiritual and serene place, MUST VISIT!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2014

If you are looking for some quiet moments with yourself or your loved ones, a break taking view of the Doon valley, within the woods with an inspiring art centre, an amalgam of all that and a love filled family who has created this with their own hands... if you are missing those sparks of vitality and creativity in your life .....think again... this life has so much to offer and this place is a must visit in your life. I felt as if I had entered a dream land when I visited this place... :)

“Culture at its creative best! :)”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

I'm an Interior Designing student and had visited SOHAM Heritage And Art Centre with my Mum. The purpose of my visit was strictly academical, to study how an Art Centre works.
On our way to the place we were quite tensed as to what sort of a response are we going to receive. But when we went there, the whole thing turned out to be just the opposite! We were welcome with such sweet smiles, by the lovely couple who own as well as run the place. :)
They took time out to sit with me and help me throughout the course of my assignment!
and the place! Its was so MAGICAL in every sense of the word!

Each piece of art is so unique and with its own story behind it. The breath-taking paintings (done by Aunty), the wall art, the instruments, the ambience! All giving you a glimpse of a culture that not many people are aware of : The Himalayan Culture. The place also has a temple, set up by the couple. Which give you a sense of calm and peace when you visit. And the best aspect and my favourite, is that, within the Art Centre is something called "Shakti" a foundation to support and encourage education for the girl child of the backward classes in Mussoorie. Where the couple run a small school. :) On the whole, an absolutely very very lovely place that gives you a mind blowing experience and many wonderful memories to cherish! And take back home with you! :) And a must visit!! Looking forward to visiting this place again and meeting Aunty and Uncle, next time I'm in Mussoorie!

All the very best to Aunty and Uncle in all their future endeavours! Much love :)
Shariqa! :)

“Peaceful and unique place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 June 2014

Soham Heritage & Art Centre is a great place. It could even be called local museum. You should really have to visit it to get some insight into the local Himalayan culture. It shows you a collection of local art, paintings with Himalayan motives, handicraft, musical instrumentes throughout the history, and there is even a temple, which the couple built by their own. All is made by a couple, with a lot of commitment...So really a must. It can be accessed via the Karma Vilas Resort, about 1 km down from Mall Road

“Amazing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2014

This place is owned by a couple who dared to get out of corporate rut to pursue their love for arts.
Husband is a sculptor and the wife is a painter, they have a wonderful display of paintings, artifacts, sculptures etc.
Lots of thought and work has been put in designing each and every corner of the place. Its an excellent blend of art and spirituality and we were highly impressed with the owners and the place.
