Chamba Rumal Workshop with Dr. Rohini Arora

Chamba Rumal

Chamba Rumal workshop with Dr Rohini Arora was by Rooftop. The Chamba Rumal gets its name from Chamba, a hill station in Himachal Pradesh, where it has been practised for centuries. The earliest records of the region go back to the 2nd century BC, making it one of the most ancient destinations in the state. The region is known for its history, architecture and landscapes but the local community is also known for its arts and crafts, in particular the miniature Pahari paintings. The Pahari school of art has received royal patronage since the 17th century when it is believed to have originated in the region.
