    Include Raghurajpur in your itinerary in your next Puri trip
    Even if you don't understand "art" as I don't, this is a must visit place. Every home in this village is an art studio, and every family member in each household is an artist. And what fabulous works of art! Even an art-blind person like me was fascinated.

    An art village like no other!♥️
    We had gone to record a documentary there and it is worth visiting if you are in Odisha! It is a treasure trove of artists and developed as India’s first artist village. You’ll find beautiful paintings, stone works, ganjifa carfs and many other trinkets!

    Raghurajpur Artist Village is a heritage village about 20 minutes drive from Pipli. The village is renowned for its unique Pattachitra art, a traditional style of painting that involves intricate detailing, vibrant colors, and mythological narratives. The Pattachitra art form primarily depicts stories from Hindu epics like the Ramayana, Mahabharata, and Puranas. The artists use natural dyes and pigments to create these exquisite paintings on pieces of cloth, known as 'Patta' in the local language.

    fantastic experience
    This place is all about patachitra paintings. Never ever i was involved in such kind of visit , this is the first time that i visited an arts village and it was truly a fantastic experience. the village is nestled in small village and is near to Bhubaneshwar. if you visit Puri then this is on the way to Puri from Bhubaneshwar. we took cab to visit this place and cab driver was having contacts in that villages so they directly came to us on arriving to the village and took us to their own workshop/shop. they showed us all the collections which costed from 30 /- rs to 1,50,000/- rs. most of the paintings are on Lord Krishna and few on Lord Sriram, Ganesha, Jaganath. we loved every paintings they showed and were tempted to buy and indeed spent 16k to buy single painting as a souvenir. i only visited one shop and never felt i should visit another neighbor or shop for better bargaining or paintings. This is a must visit place for tourists.

It is a very moving experience. A tiny village in Bhubaneshwar having such talent for art.A must visit place for every traveller to this city.Not only they sell their products but take pride in explaining their art in detail.

It's a community- village located in between Puri & Bhubaneswar. A must see by tourist and ' rural art' enthusiasts. The village with a beautiful two lanes after you cross the temple of Shri Ram has houses of artisans located on both sides of the road. Will advise to walk the roads for a survey first. All most all will display the screen printed basic design with hand painting added. If one is interested in original full hand drawn art, please look for a picture and search for another copy of same....if it's original hand painting, you can't find another. That's beauty.

Excellent art, explained with passion. Good knowledge gained regarding ancient painting techniques and relation with Lord Jagannath. Creative art and unique techniques.
The town need better display and upkeep to attract tourists and art lovers. Such an important village in terms of art but completely neglected by local government in terms of approach road, cleaning, sanitation etc.

Lovely Pattachitra art work you get to see. Had an opportunity to speak to some of the great artists. The village is a very small one, but you can see their houses filled with art work. Very beautiful!!
