Company History

Pilgrims Book House was established by Puspa and Ramanand ("Rama") Tiwari in Kathmandu in 1984,[2] succeeding the Tiwaris' earlier book business in Varanasi. In the year 1999 they started a branch in Varanasi, and in 2006 a second branch opened in Delhi.

For many years the main Pilgrims Book House bookshop branch in Kathmandu was located in Thamel. It was one of the largest bookshops in Asia with hundreds of thousands of books on display. On 16 May 2013 that bookshop caught fire and almost everything inside was burnt to ashes.

Since the fire Pilgrims has operated two bookshops, one at JP Road, Thamel, Kathmandu and the other at Durgakund, Varanasi.

Pilgrims Book House's books are also available directly from its Internet website.
