Chhattisgarh – the preferred destination for historians and anthropologists – boasts an ancient cultural heritage of delicious food, traditional dance forms, soothing music, vibrant fairs, and intricate handicrafts. This state is synonymous to a myriad of joyous festivals including Bhagoriya, Bhoramdeo Mahotsav, Chakradhar, and Dussehra. Presenting unmatched examples of expert tribal craftsmanship – this region is also home to amazing wood carvings, bamboo furniture, terracotta figurines, jewellery, paintings, and bell metal sculptures – namely Dhokra art.
An age-old method of creating metal showpieces by the wax-casting technique, Dhokra is an art form that dates back to 4000-5000 years. As per common belief, its earliest discovered lost artefact is that of a dancing girl in Mohenjodaro.
Chhattisgarh also has a lot to offer to its tourists. From stunning waterfalls to scenic landscapes, caves, temples, and heritage sites, the list is simply endless! Worthwhile to mention here is the Chitrakot Waterfalls – popularly known as the Niagara Falls of India. Dotting the state's bylanes are a number of colourful haats (marketplaces) – displaying enchanting folk motifs, created by the metal-workers of Bastar.
