Kathmandu Gallery

Worth a peek

What we say: 3 stars

Kathmandu Photo Gallery is a charming pre-war shophouse turned gallery with photography both old and new. With stained glass windows and art hanging from every surface, the small gallery feels more like a walk-in curiosity cabinet. The shop is owned by Thai photographer and artist Manit Sriwanichpoom, displaying photography from all regions of South Asia, as well as some interesting books and souvenirs to take home.

A room of perfect symmetry.

Upstairs, in an enchanting room with opened French doors, you’ll find the current temporary exhibition. Kathmandu Photo Gallery, despite its alluring ambiance, is not an all-day destination; stop in for a quick peek, or you may want to check their website for exhibition openings, which attract Bangkok’s creative community.

Stop in and browse.

Upon exiting the gallery, you might check out the awe-inspiring Sri Mahamariamman Temple, informally known as Wat Khaek. If you meander further down Silom Road, past street vendors selling amulets and incense, you can drop into one of the many Indian joints or sweet shops for a lunchtime snack.
