Kriti Gallery is tucked away from the main thoroughfare around the ghats. It's a place of peace (including a lush garden), a gallery showing tasteful local and international art, an art residency (which I did) and a home to owners Petra and Navneet who run the whole space. Exhibitions are constantly changing, including the resident artists who you can meet... More

This is an extraordinary find in Varanasi. Run buy a local man and his german wife, the gallery is a gem. The exhibits are of superior quality, the art is (usually) nontraditional (as in not traditionally Indian) and mind expanding yet consummately tasteful. They also run an artist's residency program that is excellent. I know; I stayed there.

What a fabiulous find in Varanasi. We discovered a wonderful photography exhibition. We bought one set and came back the next day for another purchase. The hosts could not have been more hospitable and friendly. Highly recommend a visit.

A wonderfull get-away from the busy and dusty city of Varanasi. A must-visit point for art lovers. An excellent place for artists who would like to spend some time in one place, focusing on their art, in this holy city. wonderful garden, well kept flours, very clean, peacefull atmosphere.

I've been in Varanasi for about a week, and visiting Kriti Gallery was one of the best part of the visit. The gallery gives voice to artists in different fields, and all the work which is being presented there is very much related to the magic of Varanasi itself. The gallery is located in a beautiful and specious garden, which... More

I've met the couple who run the gallery and visited there. The first thing I thought was "it's a Zen Garden". Kriti Gallery is a truly special place run by kind, intellectual and inspirational people. I'm really hoping to see this place again soon.

We visited the gallery on a occasion of a presentation of some documentaries of Polish filmmakers visiting the city. We were very warmly greeted by owners Petra and Navneet who made us feel very welcome. The presentation was attended by, among others, students of local university and arts collage. Lively discussion generated by the presentation was truly a good example... More

We visited this gallery on the recommendation of friends and were not disappointed. They were showing an exhibition of photographs by Katarina Weslien of the Khumb Mela festival called Riktata which means emptiness. A strange subject at a festival of 30 million people but the pictures were both moving and beautiful. The gallery is in a beautiful garden and the... More

Kriti Gallery is two in one: There’s the gallery with its various exhibitions, where international artists find a platform and a place for an intercultural exchange. Check the website to find out, what’s the running exhibition, they show modern and traditional art and unique handicrafts. It’s worth to visit! And there is the artist residence: You can rent a studio,... More
