janakpur culture and art

Mithila chitra kala aka Mithila Painting, is the cultural identity of this region, and this can be the best souvenir of your visit to Janakpur. Besides that you can also choose from a range of handmade domestic products and crafts work like clay pottery, clay statues and decorative items, handmade clothes and dolls from locally woven fabric, paintings, wooden and cloth engravings, bamboo baskets and a range of other domestic products and decorative items woven/crafted out of bamboo by the locals. All these items are produced locally by house or family based small scale business people and cheaply available. For many of the low class people these skills are the sole means if their livelihoods and the products the sole source of income.
