The Heritage village of Raghurajpur is located 10 kilometres away from Puri (in Orissa) on the southern bank of the river Bhargavi, surrounded by tropical trees that give it the identity of a real Indian village. The air in Raghurajpur breeds artistry. It has a community of artisans who produce different varieties of handicraft items like pattachitra paintings, Ganjappa cards, palm leaf engravings, stone carvings, papier-mache masks and toys etc. And the exhibition of these colourful artifacts on the verandah of each artisan’s house transforms the entire village into a living crafts museum.
