Madhubani painting is known by different names in different regions of India. The fact is it is considered the most ancient folk painting in India that has survived generations. I want to know more about the rich history and techniques of this art that is still practiced.

The origin of this art form is traced to the time of the Ramayana when Lord Ram was the King of Ayodhya in North India. According to some legends it is believed that a group of artists was commissioned to decorate the wedding venue with beautiful paintings on the occasion of the marriage of Ram and Sita by Janak, the King of Mithila.

Yes Rasika, traditionally this art was practiced by women only to decorate their huts during religious and important occasions. Nowadays men have also taken up this art form which is also done on paper, cloth, canvas, etc.
