The main concern of this paper was to explore ethno mathematical practices of geometry in the Tamang people and linking these practices in the primary level of our formal education. The research site of this study was Lurpung village of Kaverpalanchowk district of Nepal. The paper base on qualitative inquiry with Purposive sampling techniques and the researcher has doing; included Tamang people as data sources. On the basis of interview with Tamang people, and observed their workplace and came up to the conclusion that sketch or design of cultural dress blouse as curve lines, cultural food timsuraalum as triangle, and surface of jantar as quadrangular and mathi, cheptemhar, base of kulagi, damphu and two sided drum of bonbos and lamas as circle. From the musical instrument damphu, we can encourage students to draw a similar sketch in their exercise book when they learn to draw circles. To teach the quadrants, parallel lines, perpendicular lines, circular shapes we can sketch the knowledge from Nanglo. In sketching Doko, there are many geometrical concepts like square, rectangle, parallel lines, circular shape, right-angled triangle, and many others.
