Pingla Village Tour

Discover how an ancient art form is being kept alive at a rural cultural hub

About the Experience

Naya is a small village in the Pingla block of West Medinipur that has a large concentration of Patachitra painters. This village has been transformed into a craft and cultural hub with the support of government agencies and UNESCO. Here, the Patachitra painters paint stories in a series of frames on long scrolls of cloth with natural colors. This tour allows you to delve into the life of the practitioners of this traditional art form. Take the village tour to see the beautifully painted walls and participate in workshops to learn how to make natural colors and paints. Visit the Folk Art Centre to know the different kind of scrolls, their stories as well as the wide range of products.

The group will be accompanied by a professional, English speaking guide.
