Culture of konark

Konark, being a part of Odisha, shares the rest of the state’s rich culture. The classical Odissi dance and music, which was nearly forgotten during the British rule, was revived once India won her independence. The region has also retained knowledge of other dance forms such as the Chhau dance, which is a sort of tribal martial dance, the Mahari dance, which were performed by women from the Devadasi cult, and the Gotipua, which is performed by an individual. Balladry was a popular form of expression for the people in this region. They were generally of two types – Pala and Daskathia. \nLiterature has always been an important part of Konark, with several famous epics, poems and novels dating back to 900 AD produced here and that are appreciated till date. The local people are quite artistic and often use their talents to earn a living. Beautiful appliqué artwork, delicate silver filigree work, palm leaf paintings and sand sculptures are common in this region. Konark is also famous for handloom sarees such as Ikat, Bandha, Bomkai, and Pasapalli.
