The art of Pattachitra paintings emerged from Puri in Odisha. Legend has it that local artists in the Puri region began painting images of the temple deities on a piece of cloth. This practice started so as to give the temple deities a break after the annual ritual bath. This form of painting on cloth came to be known as Pattachitra, Patta meaning Cloth and Chitra meaning Painting.
