Bhuj craftsman builds mud replica of Aina Mahal
Bhuj: Aina Mahal built 250 years ago is a living monument to the ancient glory of royal days. However, a craftsman, Abdreman Ali Mamad, built a mud replica of the palace in two and a half months recreating the past splendour. Though Rajasthani craftsmen are recognised for their stone sculptures this mud craft is confined only to Bhuj having its link to the Harappa Mohinjodero civilisation. Ali Mamad is a Muslim potmaker who maintains the past tradition.
