Pattachitra, Tado Chitra and Tasar Chitra are art forms from Odisha , with the heritage village of Raghurajpur being the hub, with a history of over a thousand years. These paintings have a unique art form where Chitrakars have created some glorious paintings from the life and times of Lord Krishna, Mahabharata, Ramayana, Ganesha and Lord Jagannath. Pattachitras are made with natural colours on either cotton cloth (Patta), silk cloth (Tasar) or Palm leaf (Tado). The Geographical Indication (GI) status given to these paintings indicates the uniqueness of Pattachitra paintings. With a mix of classical and folk traditions Pattachitra, Tasar Chitra and Tado Chitra can easily blend into both traditional and contemporary homes. And, of course, as in the Puri Jagannath temple the Lord Jagannath Pattachitra can be adorned in the Puja room instead of the idols!
