DELHI
Art and craft has found a significant place in Delhi because so many dynasties and emperors ruled Delhi. Every dynasty coming and ruling in Delhi brought its own unique style of art and craft. Mughals being great patrons of art and craft brought some rich legacies. Though all of them didn’t survive, there are many that are still existing and flourishing. Other crafts that exist since the Mughal era include Zardozi, the art of embroidery with gold thread. It includes intricate designs on silk velvet and other materials and also uses semi-precious stones. Similarly, Meenakari is another significant craft of that era. In Meenakari, paint is embossed on silver or gold to give it the look of a precious stone.
