Jal Sanjhi or painting on water

Incredible expression of religious emotions is the art of ‘Jal Sanjhi or painting on water. In the Krishna temples of north, originated this art of Jal Sanjhi. The priests of the temples used to create the life forms of Lord Krishna, his childhood, his youth and his aura in form of a painting on water. The colors used were derived from dry fruits, stones, vegetables, flowers, fruits and other natural substances. It takes six to seven hours of hard dedicated work of an artisan to create this beautiful magical scene on the surface of water. The finished work remains intact for 3 to 4 hours and then gradually dissipates in water. It was under royal patronage of kings.
With the advent of modern era, kingship and royal patronage became on a simple, poor and god fearing priest of the temple, yet they have dedicated their lives to this non profitable art. But in 21st century, the art form has become almost extinct.
