Indian Paintings can broadly be divided into two broad categories - the murals and miniatures. Murals are vast works performed on the walls of firm structures, as the travelers will find the best examples of mural paintings at Ajanta Caves and the Kailashnath temple. Miniature paintings are performed on a very small scale on spoilable material such as paper and cloth. The best examples of this type of miniature paintings are Palas of Bengal, however, the art of miniature painting attained its glory during the era of Mughal Empire. The custom of miniature paintings was carried over by the painters of different Rajasthani schools of painting. The famous Ragamala paintings renowned in the world also belong to this school. So the Indian paintings are the fusion of the various cultures and traditions evolved during the different phases of Indian history of paintings. Some of the renowned schools of Painting are Miniature painting, Madhubani paintings, Rajput paintings, Kangra paintings, Mughal painting, Mysore painting, Tanjore painting and the Bengal School of painting etc. The themes of Indian paintings revolved around folk art, portraits, landscapes, nature, lifestyle etc.
