A Touch of Indo-Nepali Culture on Pal Street
[updated November 2022]

Since 2002, Potala has been offering ethnic fashion, jewelry and Nepalese antiques, on Pal Street. Together with Khana Indian-Nepali Restaurant, they are the ambassadors of Indian and Nepalese culture on Koenji’s central shotengai shopping street. Being an ethnic shop, Potala ensures that its products, including those under its own brand “Om Shanti” are indeed manufactured both in India and Nepal. Potala is the perfect stop in Koenji for those looking for the ever so popular relaxed and colourful ethnic fashion at very accessible prices. The shop is open all-year round, and Mr. Thapa, the owner, is always there to greet customers with a friendly smile.
