Over the millennia, a still vibrant school of painting has been handed down in the female line in what used to be the ancient Kingdom of Mithila. Janakpur, located in the Terai region in southern Nepal, is thought to have been the capital of the kingdom of Mithila from its foundation. The paintings have the purpose of attracting the deity?۪s presence during the celebrations in his or her honour and a blessing on the family members of the house where they are painted.
