The Sophea Gallery houses an extensive collection of Tibetan Art and Artefacts. It is set in a beautiful old house which overlooks the magnificent False Bay of the Western Cape, South Africa.
The Sophea Gallery and Tibetan Teahouse offers "Food for Body and Soul". The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The Gallery is made up of other sections, each of them unique.
The Shop offers exquisite silver jewellery and Tibetan Artefacts. These are mostly specialised Buddhist artefacts such as Tibetan Prayer Flags, Singing Bowls and Butter lamps to mention only a few. There are also many Tibetan traditional stones, statues and masks which were made by a sculptor from Patan in Nepal.
The Sanctuary is where you can enjoy personal time, taking care of your soul. This is where most of the events take place such as talks, singing bowl healing meditations and teachings by visiting monks to mention only a few.
