Usta Kala Paintings
USTA ART- The unique form of paintings on camel hide Usta Art came from Iran and flourished in the Mughal durbars and inter-mingled with the Indian culture. Raja Rai Singh, the then king of Bikaner, brought nawab Usta artists to his kingdom. The Usta artisans of Bikaner developed a new stream of Usta art. Their descendents manifested its beauty in the form of Bikaner's fabulous Junagarh Fort's Anoop palace, Chandra palace, karan palace and Phool Mahal.
