About P-TAL

The Thatheras of Jandiala Guru are a community of skilled craftsmen who specialize in the traditional technique of making hand crafted brass,copper and bell metal utensils by hammering metal sheets. This unique craft of the Thateras of Jandiala Guru in Amritsar is the first craft of India to be inscribed in the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2014. As time passed, due to the onset of changing culture and modernised tastes, the Thatheras lost their stature.
