0 Reviews
The three novels of Under The Painted Eyes are set in the shadow of the great Himalayan Mountains and against the background tapestry of Nepal's fascinating history and rich culture. Fictional and historical characters live, love, fight and worship under the watching eyes of the Adi Buddha, which are painted on the torans of the Swayambhunath and the Bodnath and other ancient temples. The novels tell of romance and love over the centuries and the happiness and tragedy they bring. There are the golden-roofed pagodas and the exotic festivals, intrigue, war and massacre, and the abuse of power and finally the successful struggle for democracy in modern times.
