Dhalapathar Parda and Fabrics of Odisha

About a century ago a community known as Rangani producea number of beautiful Pardas or curtains through a special weaving technique in the village of Dhalapathar in Odisha. The temple designs on the Parda have an aesthetic look and became very popular as they gave the doors in any home a temple-like appearance. As a result, the weavers recreated all the famous temples of Orissa like the Puri Jagannath Temple, Konark Temple, Lingaraj Temple and others on Pardas.
