Medinipur: A Tour Across Culture & Time

South-West corner of West Bengal. A untapped tourism destination. Sea, virgin sea beach, hills, Jungles, local dance and musical troop, old temples, a glass of Mahua with tribes, Dhamsa-Madal the ancient version of musical instruments and dark black roads across the woods! Let me introduce you, to my birthplace.

1: ART

A perfect reflation of tribal life. Their society and culture. Such tribal piece of work has its own identity in international market.

Tamralipta (Now Tamluk) was the India’s ancient city on the Bay of Bengal. It was the Mauryan trade rout for south and south-east Asia. This place was mentioned by Chinese traveler Fa Hien.

Image

This type of piece of work is from Bishnupur, a nearby town and another historical place. This type of art is called Teracotta.
Terracotta was the only ceramic produced by Western and pre-Columbian people until the 14th century, when European higher fired stoneware began production.
