Murals have a large credit of their own in field of art in Indian culture. Murals are the paintings made on the walls as well as on the floor of a house. It represents sacred occasion as well as festival of Joy. In Rajasthan women of rural areas still now use to decorate outermost walls made up of cow dung of their home with murals known as Maandana here on the occasion of marriage and holy festivals. Murals are painted with three colors commonly here i.e Pink, yellow and white and it s style is mainly depended on the occasion. In rural areas Murals are commonly painted here on the occasion of Diwali.
