"Artistic Place where Hindu deities are sculpted"

It is a traditional village, in Kolkata, where potters intricately and carefully sculpt the idols of Hindu deities that are to become the centre-piece of Kolkata's many vivid religious ceremonies. It is an astonishing place where one can behold the spectacle of deities being created out of the clay and then adorned with colourful decorations.

Kumortuli is a traditionally potters’ quarter in northern Kolkata , the capital of the east Indian state of West Bengal. The city is famous as a sculpting hot-spot which not only manufactures clay idols for various festivals but also regularly export them.
