Tanjore paintings are classical south Indian painting style, that originated from Tanjore in Tamil Nadu back in the 17th century. These paintings are characterized by their rich and vivid colors, simple iconic composition, glittering gold foils overlaid on delicate but extensive gesso work and inlay of glass beads and pieces or very rarely precious and semi-precious gems. They essentially symbolize ancient themes of traditional gods and goddesses.


Rajamannar, also known as Rajagopalaswamy, is the presiding deity of the town, Mannargudi in Tamil Nadu. Rajamannar is a manifestation of Lord Krishna, shown here as a young shepherd in a dhoti and a whip held in one hand, with a cow and calf beside him. This aspect of the deity is a depiction of Lord Krishna as a teenager, who bravely fought the assassins sent by his maternal uncle, Kamsa. Thus, he is seen in the attire of a warrior, while holding the whip of a shepherd in his hand.
The Rajagopalaswamy temple of Mannargudi flourished in the 16th century, under the patronage of Thanjavur Nayakas, who made it the primary shrine of their dynasty and developed the temple significantly. Today, the Rajagopalaswamy Temple is known as 'Dakshina Dwaraka' or the 'Dwaraka of the South', as locals believe the sages Gopillar and Gopralayar witnessed Sri Krishna re-enacting the 32 leelas or chapters of his incarnation to them, in the vicinity of the temple town Mannargudi.


Tanjore paintings are believed to be auspicious and preserved as valuable antiques. The paintings are painted by expert artisans who empathize on precision and detail. These paintings make your walls beautiful and gives it a royal touch. Also, they are an ideal gifting option for any occasion
