Kumortuli (also spelt Kumartuli) is a traditionally potters’ quarter in northern Kolkata. By virtue of their artistic productions these potters have moved from obscurity to prominence and Kumartuli has become a hub of art. This Kolkata neighbourhood, not only supplies clay idols of Hindu gods and goddesses to barowari pujas in Kolkata and its neighbourhoods, but a number of idols are exported. It is one of the seven wonders in Kolkata.
