While the artisans are highly skilled they need more exposure and the local hotels and resorts and holiday homes should come to their help.

Must Visit in Odisha
Dec 2020
Odisha is artist's state and each part of the state has well renowned artist. Raghurajpur Village is one such and unique place where every villager is artist and not just that, they are also awarded artist. Each house produce and sell Pattachitra Painting and other artefacts.

We met a local who took us around the village and also to his house and showed us their work. He explained everything about Pattachitra, how it is made, how much time it takes and much more! I showcased their work on my channel and would like to support them in getting more recognition.

Due to covid, the villagers are at loss as their main income is dependent on tourist and since that is stopped, it becomes difficult to produce art and sell it. Cost is not high, they are moderately charged and they have artefacts from low to high cost.

I strongly suggest everyone who is visiting Odisha, should pay a visit to this village and help villagers with their art work.

The village famous for Patta Chitra
Feb 2021
Pattachitra is a general term for traditional, cloth-based scroll painting of Odisha and Raghurajpur is home to it. A small village 15 0 20 kms out of Puri, coming to limelight for is Pattachitras. Traditional families hereditarily engaged in painting intricate details as well as mythological narratives and folktales in cloth scrolls. A value for the money for Art lovers.

Best Pattachitra Painting
Dec 2019
The village, near to Puri is famous for Pattachitra Paininting.Patta means a piece of cloth, which is basically dried palm leaves and painting of god goddess made over them. The pattachitra here is cheap compare to the same sold outside and you also have variety to choose from. You may visit this place if you want to see or buy pattachitra, otherwise the village doesn’t have anything to see.

A different experience in the routine sightseeing around Puri. One would love the variety of art & craft things that are made & being sold in the village. Many things of different price range is available. Was mesmerized by the intricate details of the paintings.
Worth visiting.
