During childhood days when ever visiting puri, always from the window I would stare at the beautiful appliqué work on the display. This appliqué can be found in every house & corporate offices. So finally before leaving Bhubaneswar I decide to go for a short solo bike trip in order to know more about the history of this tiny hamlet, which is famous for its handmade handicrafts. The village was set up by Maharaja Birakshore in 1054 for accommodating the craftsmen for providing regular supply of the items required for the rites performed at the Jaganath temple.
