Ubud is beautiful and overwhelming. I was seeking an authentic hindu store that could represent balinese culture and spirituality. There are a lot of stores and even more tourists. The stores are decorated with these beautiful shrines and sell small statues of Buddha and Ganesh. Many tourists buy these as souvenirs, a token to prove their exotic travels. The statues begin to lack spirituality and the buyers have no idea the meaning behind them.
When I found this gallery I felt refreshed and welcomed. The name "Pure Land" really suits the space, as soon as I entered I felt a safe and sacred energy. I quickly befriended the man working there, his name was Dewa Putra. He had a very welcoming and gentle vibe to him. Whenever I showed any interest in a piece, he would explain the meaning and purpose to it with great detail. I ended up sitting with him on the floor cushions and he taught me how to use a singing bowl. He taught me the connection you must have with the bowl to play it right and we discussed our beliefs and how they influence us. I ended up buying these beautiful tibetan prayer flags, mala prayer beads and a hindu spinning ring. I learned a lot from him and the gallery, after leaving I felt even more connected with the balinese culture. I left with a very relaxed and uplifting energy. Dewa was very humble and respectful. It was nice to make a friend as well creating a spiritual connection with somebody. I really recommend going here if you want beautiful authentic art. This place is very reasonably priced and is unlike any other store I went to in Bali.

This is your go-to location for more exotic Asian art from Nepal, Tibet, etc. Shakar keeps a great collection of hand-sourced goods from his travels and I wouldn't buy from anyone other than him if you're looking for the best stuff: tapestries, prayer wheels, jewelry, he's got a bit of everything. I totally agree with a previous reviewer; this is real art, not local mass produced "crafts" so the wiggle room for bargaining will be less than what you may have found exploring the rest of Bali, but well worth it.

Pure land Gallery has some outstanding Thangka paintings for sale at very reasonable prices considering the amount of work that goes into creating one. The staff are very helpful and pleasant as well.They were willing to bargain a bit too, but nothing like regular bargaining in Bali, so be mindful that the Thangka's are traveling quite a bit before they arrive in Bali.

Certainly worth a visit !!
