Tharus are indigenous people who have settled across many districts in the Terai and inner Terai regions of Nepal. Nawalpur district’s population is mostly Tharu, Magar, Brahmin, and Thakuri. The Tharu people are creative individuals who incorporate art into all aspects of their lives, from the architecture of their homes to the food they eat.
