About Tanjore Paintings

Tanjore paintings have decorated the walls of temples, palaces and homes since the chola dynasty(17th century). Deeply rooted in tradition, Tanjore paintings depict divine Gods and Goddesses of the Hindu pantheon in rich vibrant colors. Notable for the adornment of semi-precious stones, pearls and 22 karat gold foils, creation of these paintings involves a lot of dedication and several stages of meticulous artwork.
