Raja Ki Mandi station in Agra gets a colourful makeover with gorgeous wall art

The idea of painting walls of Railway stations with vibrant, colourful art has become very popular lately. They have received huge support and appreciation from all quarters. The vibrant art not only creates awareness among the public, it also encourages them to keep the stations clean.

We have reported earlier about the beautiful paintings at Titwala railway station near Mumbai and Madhubani railway station in Bihar. Both projects have received tremendous public appreciation and support. While the Titwala station saw wall-art spreading awareness about cleanliness and deforestation, The Madhubani station’s wall art was a tribute to the local art-form of Madhubani paintings. The East Central Railway division had taken it upon itself to beautify the station walls with traditional murals in the Madhubani station. While in case of Titwala the paintings saw a mix of modern art and awareness campaigns carried out by Central Railways.

The latest entrant in this positive and energetic initiative is the Raja Ki Mandi railway station in Agra, Uttar Pradesh. According to a report, the railway officials have roped in the student artists of Lalit Kala Sansthan to unleash their creativity on the station walls of Raja Ki Mandi. Rashmi Baghel, senior DCM, Agra Division, North-Central Railways, stated that the beautification projects are being undertaken with the tagline “Mera station, Meri Shaan” and they have already painted the walls of the Agra Cantonment station too.

Ministry of Railways has tweeted regarding the beautiful art at the Raja Ki Mandi station.

The paintings at the stations were based on the “pachhikari” work of Agra, giving them a Mughal era feel. On the other hand, the paintings at the Raja Ki Mandi station will showcase the “Ram Baraat” of Agra. Here it must be added that the “Ram Baraat” is a part of the famous Ramleela celebrations of Agra and it is one of the biggest events in the city.
