Kangra paintings, also known as Pahari paintings, are a form of Indian miniature paintings that originated in the Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh. These paintings are known for their intricate details, use of bright colors, and depiction of the human form. The Kangra school of painting emerged in the 17th century and was patronized by the rulers of the Kangra region. The paintings typically depict scenes from the lives of gods and goddesses, as well as scenes from everyday life. The Kangra paintings were highly influenced by the Bhakti movement, and many of them feature depictions of Radha and Krishna. Today, Kangra paintings are highly prized by collectors and art enthusiasts, and can be found in museums and galleries around the world.
