Last week I visited Kolkata with my family and came to know about a village called Krishnanagar. The village has some royal significance and is well-known for its clay crafts in entire Bengal. Can anyone tell me about the types of crafts available there. And if there are any other crafts that is famous in Kolkata and adjacent areas.

Amongst all the crafts of the state, the art of clay doll making is amongst the most popular ones. These beautiful lively clay structures are adorned with vibrant colours. Though the art of doll making has always been an integral part of Bengal`s culture, it gained momentum under the patronage of Maharaja Krishna Chandra of Krishnanagar in the late 18th Century. Ghurni, in Krishnanagar city of Nadia District (West Bengal) is the place renowned for its clay sculptures and toys.
