Holy and devotional thoughts greatly terminate the inspirational source of Ghat paintings. Ghats’s paintings represent the natural beauty of holiest spot that glorified by myths and apologue that fetches art lovers remarkably close to the nature.

Some of India’s historically significant and visually gripping water banks serve as a great way of inspiration for painters who want to make fame in this discipline. Artists generally pose paying a visit to the divine banks in order to get an immediate experience of the place before picking up their brush to forms paintings on Ghats which they want to imitate with colors.

Painters like Sudip Routh, Madhusudan, Durga Charan Das mostly prefer oil on canvas or water colours to serve as a tool in helping them to create realistic ghatscapes. They manage to blend their colors so well in all their paintings, that we actually see the radiance from a setting or rising sun lighting up the city and transforming it into a shimmering and almost breathing, beautiful creature. It consign them a proper idea of the surroundings and atmosphere of the Ghats, making it possible to design symbolism in their perception.
