Rajasthan is well renowned for its abundance of stone as a building material and its stone craftsmanship. This is apparent in several historic & contemporary temples and buildings and it has created a niche for itself in the global market. There is a significant role of Pindwara artisans in stone carving, marble carving and temple construction work all over the world.
Marble carving work & temple work enjoy a long tradition in Pindwara but there were few significant obstacles which hinder the development of the area. Government of Rajasthan recognized these problems and decided to take up the development of Stone Art (Marble Carving) Pindwara Cluster, under Rajasthan Cluster Development Programme for small artisan of Pindwara area. Arpan Seva Sansthan was nominated as a project implementing agency by the Industries Department for this project.
