The history of the intricate designs of Nellore’s Udayagiri art dates back to 150 years of time. This craft originated during the time of Quli Qutub Shah dynasty and was passed down through generations over time. Though this art’s origin goes back in history, it came into light only 11 years ago. Nobody knew about this craft until the government gave it a thought of upbringing this art by providing training to the artists and a platform for them to market their art. Earlier it was practiced by both men and women but it was slowly taken over by women completely.
It was during the era of Tipu Sultan, when he was mesmerized by the Persian art and he brought in artists from Persia to teach the craftsmen about this form of craft. In and around the city, soon flourished this art and became famous for toy making!
