In fact, the village is close to Pinguli, a tribal art village famous for its art and crafts and home to the indigenous Thakars tribe. This tribe of artists, storytellers and puppeteers has been around for more than 400 years. You could catch the theatrical performance of Chitragathi and shadow puppetry at the Pinguli.
