The art of pattachitra has been traditionally practiced by the Mahapatras or Maharana, the professional painter-caste in Puri, Odisha. It emerged as an important feature in the embellishment of Lord Jagananth in the inner-most sanctum, where paintings on specially treated cloth or pata, of the deities, are done by temple painter


The fine form of Patachitra has been revived with great success at the artists village of Raghurajpur just outside Puri, where over 200 families practice the art revitalized from family sketch books handed down from generation to generation. The craftsmen accord great reverence to these family heirlooms which are worshiped along with the family deities.
