Kathmandu, January 9
Ambassador of Nepal to Qatar Narad Nath Bharadwaj handed over a Nepali carpet, gifted by President Bidhya Devi Bhandari, to the National Museum of Qatar. The gift was handed over to Ahmad Musa Al-Namla, acting chief executive officer of Qatar Museums amidst a function on January 2.
The gifted carpet was specially made by Nepali craftsmen in Kathmandu at the instruction of the president with a view to display it at the Qatari museum as an artistic creation of the Nepali handicraft industry, the Embassy of Nepal in Doha said.
President Bhandari had thought of gifting a carpet to the museum during her state visit to Qatar in October 2018. During her visit, President Bhandari had the opportunity to visit the Museum of Islamic Art as a great regard for the culture and heritage of the Qatari Society.
