The kamangars are a community of carpenters, designers, housebuilders and craftspeople who are responsible for crafting the magnificent wall paintings in Gujarat. The kamangari paintings have been flourishing since the rule of Lakhaji II. The kamanagars were commissioned to paint homes, places of worship and administrative buildings and adorn these buildings with their skill. The themes range from mythological to natural motifs and daily life. The kamanagari craft is practiced on adding ornamental and cultural value on wall murals and other interior elements.
