                            Sculpture in Garhwal
                 Carving development had been a continuous process in Garhwal. Shrinagar was famous for mud statues for Lord Ganesha, Garud, Bhairav and goddesses. Pilgrims used to buy these statues from Shrinagar or on the path of Badrinath. The artisans used to paste black color on these statues that the statues used to offer the scene of black hill stone.
    Sculpture Makers used to cut the green –blue shadowed hill stone and used to make sculptures. However, the fineness in sculpture making in Katyuri Era was finer in Garhwal-Kumaon and diminished in Pal /Shah Era.  The Har-Gauri , Mahishimardani, Garud sculptures of Devalgarh, Ranihat and Shrinagar temples of Pal Era are inferior than sculptures of Katyuri Era.
              Shrinagar was centre of sculpture making and trading too.  The Kingdom used to promote sculpture making and used to arrange salaries for sculpture makers. Garhwal Kings also built temples and established sculptures.
 Metal sculptures of Deities and Goddesses was common and used to sell to pilgrims.
