Silky Tussar sensations from the tribal belt of Chattisgarh

Rich in natural resources, a great source of electricity and steel for India, Chattisgarh has earned the reputation of ‘fastest growing state of India’. This Indian state carved out from Madhya Pradesh in 2000, has Raipur as Capital city. With a phenomenally good connectivity, with the rest of the country, through a wide network of roads, Chattisgarh has 11 National Highways passing through it and very many all-weather roads throughout the state. The name Chattisgarh could have come possibly from the Chattisgarhin Devi temple with 36 pillars or the corrupted form of Cheddisgarh meaning Raj or Empire of the Chedis of the Kalchuri dynasty. Chattisgarh is termed the ‘rice bowl’ of Central India, is an ecologically rich state and a fine tourism destination. It has earned the reputation as a traditional hub for exceptional handloom silks.
