Kumortuli 2010

A photo feature by
Rangan Datta

Kumartuli (or Kumortuli) literally meaning Potters' Quarter
(Kumor = Potter, Tuli = Quarter) is located at the northern end of the city of Calcutta (Kolkata). Kumartuli (Kumortuli) is older than Calcutta (Kolkata) and consist of amazing maze of lanes & by lanes some less than 2 feet across.

Kumartuli specialises in clay idol making and from the month of August Kumartuli starts gearing up the Bengali's greatest festival the Durga Puja, which is normally held in mid October.

A visit to Kumartuli during the period of August - October can provide amazing activity, with the artists working round the clock on idols of Durga and her children.
